GAR! Podcast Episode 17- So Much Fun, Our Wives Joined In

Hey- this is Ray. Glenn writes the episode descriptions (which means he relistens to the podcast after we’re done, and takes down all the references, and researches all the links and videos, which is MUCH harder than the technical stuff I do. Bless his insomniac heart), but I had to start with this. This episode was a TON of fun to do. We were in a great groove, and throwing in our wives for quick cameos (Glenn’s married to Jenn, and I’m married to CL) on this one just made it more fun. We really hope you like this one, and we thank you for all the support. Take it away, Glenn!
