Crunch Time: No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 122

Crunch time…

Just about every industry has it and even we have ours.  It has been so busy the last few months I have had to call home and ask Fran if I am there - because I don’t know if I am coming or going.  It is starting to let up a bit, and finally we managed to squeeze in a show with the promise of more regular shows to come.  Considering, however, that is the first time we have let up like this in the years we have been podcasting it’s not a bad average.

So  thanks for listening to No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 122. Here are the show notes, including articles we discussed.

See you online,
