So, yes, I just launched my new podcast, The Play Typer Guy, which is named after how my son once described me to his kindergarten teacher. He's nine now but still finds this amusing. I'll probably have to come up with a different name when he's 12 and thinks I'm a big dork.
Please check out the podcast wherever fine podcasts are found. You can download episodes and listen at your leisure. I plan to do a lot of in-depth interviews with political figures and, of course, fun people from the arts. Thanks to the wonderful Martini Glambassador for the cover art.
Finally, sit back and dine like a Jane Austen character. Man, it's bloody revolting.
