It’s Wednesday. I’m back in the studio recording the next series of interviews for BroadMic, the podcast I’m hosting. ICYMI — yes, I’m hosting a podcast. Head over to iTunes and take a listen. For those who have downloaded the “initial” season, the BroadMic team has listened to your feedback, so get ready for tweaks in the format and equally fabulous new interviews later this Spring.
