I don't often share crazy, obscure, rediculous ghost stories with people, but these are crazy, obscure, rediculous times.  

While this deals with things that may or may not really be there, the lesson learned from this certainly exists.  Take some time and hear me out.  And then, follow the instructions at the end.  

You'll thank me later.  You'll thank yourself immediately.

To celebrate the 200th episode of the show, I've decided to turn the microphone inward and have my three favorite people that have ever walked the planet interview me.

Sometimes I feel like it takes me so long to get some people I know to be on the show.  This is a time that I waited too long.  Tom Hall was someone you should have known, and he probably had an impact on your life, even if you didn't (certainly if you listen to this show).  

Here's to you, Tom.

This week we share a story that we never get the time to tell.  However, the lessons that are woven into it are some of the most important that we could ever share.  The embellishments have been stripped out (to a minimum) and old wounds laid bare.  

I hope you get something out of this.  If you do, please pass it along to someone else who might as well.
