A Message From Flynn

Hello dear listeners.  I know we haven’t put out a podcast in a few weeks.  Summer vacations and family events have us pretty busy.  I can’t speak for my co-hosts but I have decided to take an indefinite break from podcasting due to work and family obligations.  I have very little time to myself these days despite being semi-retired.  I’m hoping to be back to hosting the cast weekly by the new year, but as of now I cannot promise any type of time line.  All I can say is stay tuned, we will be back.  I hope you all are having a happy and safe summer.  See you in game.  –Flynn
