WonkyFolk Vol 11 – Two Turkeys Together Again: The Thanksgiving Episode

Greetings, CharterFolk!

This week, Andy and I are focused on a Thanksgiving theme. We are talking about what we are thankful for over the last year, personally and professionally, as well as traditions and new results.

Here is a link to the podcast. And for those of you who would prefer a video recording, we provide a link to YouTube as well.
