    Thank you for posting your podcast on Sunday because I want to listen to it as soon as it comes out and usually I have to listen to it at work. I can’t really listen all the way cause I am at daycare.Also just to let you know Dan I was following you on Twitter but I stopped because you just talk about baseball and don’t tweet me back so I stopped following you. I like both of you. I came to know you because of the posts in the Register. I thought I would just clear that up. Anyway you guys both have a great work week and I will too.😘Nancy GILCHRIST


    1. To be fair, I don’t tweet anyone back. That’s how arguments on social media start. I also talk about old G.I. Joe toys a lot. I don’t want to talk about things on Twitter that everyone else talks about. This leads to people getting angry. I’m all stocked up on angry people. I’m not saying you would get angry, but people do. So I rarely respond.
