EP 312 - With Fists Raised
Well...shoot. Thanks for listening to our yarnin’, travelers. This last one has been a long meandering road, full of unexpected twists and turns and yet here we are standin’ at the end of it. It’s a wonderful thing, listeners, finishing a story. Almost as wonderful as starting a new one.  We may be finished up with this tale, but there’s always a new one to tell, if you know where to look. So keep a weathered eye on the horizon. Thanks again for coming with us on this journey. But don’t get too cozy. I’ve a feelin’ we’ve got another one coming right around the bend.
