We’ve recorded a podcast! Laquana Cooke, Nick Hanford, Candice Lanius, and myself sat down at Finnbar’s, our local pub last week. This is the first of two or three podcasts that came out of that conversation. Laquana had to leave early during this podcast, so she missed the second half of this episode (but she’s back for next week’s episode).
Edited by Gaines Hubbell, who’s not sorry about the background noise.
