Hey, it’s our first podcast! I think the reference to the original fireside chats of FDR is apropriate, since the radio was his tool to create a sense of closeness with his audience. It worked, and it seems we have come in a virtual full circle. From writing to reading to 007, I enjoy our conversations. I am glad to get the opportunity to share a little about what this blog means to us and chat about some of the things we enjoy. I hope to bring many fireside chats to this place, and to anyone who wants to join, in the future.
