EP 62: A little Longer But Not Quite Normal

Welcome to episode 62 of Coach Taylor Radio!!! While it is another stunted edition I think it is an interesting discussion.

I am still pretty life busy but this upcoming week things should settle back down a bit so can get back to more regular posting and interaction!!!!

This episode I wanted to talk about some of the musings I have been having over the last two weeks while I slave away to tasks of my own design……

Any questions for episode 63 feel free to send my way!!!!!
