The Accidental Podcast guest

This should have been posted 6/10/15!

Last week, (first week of June) I was visiting Atlanta GA, taking care of summer plans for the family. Being a frequent visitor of the taping of the PowerScripting Podcast, and I knew Hal was out of town, I decided to ask,  Jon Waltz @jonwalz if I could come by and co-host the talk. I had a freaking blast recording (if only could have seen the Chat to answer questions as they came thru HAHA!) It should be Episode 302 of the PowerScripting Podcast or something like that. The video recording of the live taping is on


A few items I mentioned in Episode 302 of the PowerScripting Podcast
