T.I.T. Podcast Episode 53: The Red Storm in a Tea Cup…

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! :-)
