Welcome to 2017.  I advise you to strap in, because this one is more than just blowing the rust out of the pipes.  I'm getting back into a personality-driven podcast, and it's going to be about one thing: where the show prep takes me.  I don't mind telling you this felt good.  While there aren't any comments on the site here, you can engage with me on social media at @krisroley on FB, Twitter, and Instagram.  Scroll to the bottom of the page for the links.  Let's have a great year.  --K
