Erik Fisher and I discuss our thoughts on the new profile design in this episode.

    Hi Cliff, 

    I just getting around to leaving a comment. This is the first time I had a chance to watch and listen to the live show live. I had a lot of fun listening. I was surprised at how much you moved stuff in the editing. I always just assumed your was mostly recorded in order. 

    I digressed a bit there, but the message is I really had a blast viewing live! I hope to be able to join again.

    Regards,
    James

    cashcarconvert  James, I don’t always move so much around in a podcast.  I would say that 7 out of 10 episodes are done where I hit the record butt, talk, stop the recording, process with my secret sauce in Audition, tag, upload and publish.

    In fact, episode 355 was done that way.
