Goooooood morning, afternoon, evening and night depending on where and when in the world you happen to stop by and read this. Firstly, I realize that it has been ages and ages since I did a T.I.T. cast and I’m really sorry to have kept you guys waiting for so long. Secondly, I decided to sit down today and try my best to rattle off a podcast without any show notes, so if this episode ends up sucking then big sorrys again. I catch myself rambling on a bit, a few times as i went through the episode but i was trying to cover so much information in a very limited time frame. Anyways, hope you guys enjoy and will try to be more organized with notes and such next week! IN the meantime, i wanna send out much MUCH love from the “Big Mango!” Enjoy!!!! P.S. Ignore the episode number in the artwork….it was a bit of a mistake!
Email me at email@example.com, please go Comment on my page or call my voice line at 1-206-426-2152 and leave me a voice comment for the show!
Well, I guess I need to apologize for not posting a podcast last weekend but I decided to buckle down on the paperwork to get my studies finished off. I worked on the final draft of my thesis over the weekend and I’m most proud to say that i went to Grad school on Monday and turned in the final copy. ( I hope!)
However, I was unable to sit down and record a podcast as it takes several hours from start to finish but I promise you guys that I will record one this week. If not before the end of the work week, then by Saturday absolutely for sure. I know some of you guys out there miss me, so I thought I should write a little entry to let you know I care. :-) My loving critic reminded me the other day that i could at least sit down and write something if I don’t have time to sit down and record a podcast.
Also, in case you haven’t noticed, Tom in Thailand now has an official U.S. based phone line where you can call in and leave me voice mails. The voice mails that you guys leave will be sent directly to my email so I will receive them and I can play/respond to them on the show. I have my dear sweet friend Craig over at the Royal Pains to thank for the voice mail number, so please make sure you guys go over to the Royal Pains and check them out. I highly recommend them!
Well, I will close out here and wish everyone a super productive week ahead. Much love from the big mango and I promise to talk to you guys again soon!
Just a quick hi from me and an explanation/apology for not podcasting over the past weekend. I got some new listener emails and comments I wanted to talk about a bit, and send a special thanks for you guys that sent them. Also, If you’ve seen the policital turmoil going on in Thailand on the news then don’t worry about me…It is not going on anywhere near where I’m living and most of the protests thus far have been civil and not violent..mostly that is. Anyway, have a watch and enjoy…will try and podcast again towards the middle of the week.
