I spent two minutes, at the open of this episode, to share an update on my focus to take my health and physical fitness to the next level. On November 14th, I celebrated the one year anniversary of my decision to drastically change my lifestyle. I’m going to keep my coverage of this topic, here in the show notes, brief as well.

I’ve given a great deal of thought about the consistency of this podcast lately. We’re currently in our 48th week of 2015 and this episode is the 40th episode that I’ve produced so far this year. That means that there have been a total of eight weeks where I did not publish an episode of Podcast Answer Man. Yes, I do have my reasons and excuses for this. However, I know, first hand, just how important consistency is to maintain a loyal community of folks who will make you a part of their weekly listening routines. From this point forward, I will release an episode every week, publishing the episode to the feed on Friday mornings at 5am Eastern Time.
