TDH – Amazon Stole the Show

Well I was all alone today, and I felt like I put together a good show with good commentary and well researched stories. Unfortunately, at the end WRCT’s transmitter went down, so I had to end my show without a signoff, but you all are here for the audio, so you know how to go about that. Please go read the self-healing materials story that I didn’t get to finish talking about, it is some pretty interesting stuff. Erik should be back on next week, and we will still be delivering a high quality show.
