About this Episode

From corned beef to Space Shuttles, lots of history this week. Since I recorded this episode, Colorado is now under a shelter in place order. We are doing our best here in Loveland. Stay same everyone!

I have launched something new. As many of you know, I've always had and will always make sure this podcast is free. I have launched a Patreon account that will help me cover hosting expenses, software, and more. I realize we are entering some uncertain times and that things are going to get tight for a lot of people. However, if you can, I'd love if you could consider supporting the podcast by chipping in any amount you can. Thank you!
