Episode 69: Now Hear Me Out!

Show Notes:  

Opening music: Ben Folds Five "Do it anyway" (Because I needed to remember this when releasing this....)

Closing music: Martha Jones Theme on piano by Murray Gold (Because....#feeelings)

Also sampled: Ben Folds Five "Philosophy"

I apologize for the highly self indulgent episode. I equally apologize for the horrible execution of this adequately written piece. Well you have to start somewhere. I will be back to my unapologetically enthusiastic self. Thank you for allowing me to experiment.

Remember: Do not give up what you want most for what you want right now!
