From Your Host

I know we said we’d be doing the next show on Friday the 20th instead of Tuesday the 17th. Turns out I was wrong about that. This Tuesday, the show will take place at its normal time 5pm est time. The week after, the show will be on Friday the 27th instead of Tuesday the 24th. If there are any changes, we’ll let you know here
