Hi guys! Jenn here. Internet is (finally) back up and running. I’m just now catching up on posting the podcasts, and I have other posts I have promised that I WILL make good on, such as – the Jr Prom/Homecoming photo of me and co-creator Barry, my personal “Top 100” songs from the 80s (and hopefully Kary’s, and Barry’s, if they are willing), and a dozen more. These are in production as we speak, so should be public very soon. Thanks for your patience, and hope you enjoy!
