MHF Show Notes - Episode5
Sunday Jan 24th
Note from DenverPilot: DUE TO THE VERY LONG NATURE OF OUR RECORDING WE MADE, THIS EPISODE WILL BE POSTED IN TWO PARTS! We are learning still, thanks for bearing with us! Additionally I would have liked to have spent another hour editing and cleaning this up - we had some difficulties with Skype and the result you're hearing here is FAR better than how it really went. We had to redial everyone no less than 5 times! Thanks for your understanding! We'll keep making it better!
