Show Notes

Length: 18 minutes 13 seconds
Synopsis: After battling the resistance (and losing) all summer, I finally broke through and recorded my 300th episode! Originally this was supposed to coincide with my "two years of gratitude" milestone (which I passed 27 days ago), but better late than never!  I address these topics and more in this stream-of-consciousness episode.
