Listen to EOL Episode 9: The Boa Maneuver



Hi, how was your summer? See any good movies? TV? Read any books? So, yeah its been a … while since our last episode. This little thing we try to avoid called “real life” got in the way. And we are really really sorry that happened. We are happy to be back on track with our little podcast and we hope you like Episode Number 9, Number 9, number .. er um 9 a lot. We are already in the process of stapling 3 by 5 cards together into Pyramid hats that will eventually be Episode 10. Stay tuned! Oh, and thanks a million to Eric Troupe for coming in and doing a stellar job in the 3rd chair.
