Eagles AND the return of Miel's Dad Jim? A TWO part episode of a very much one episode podcast?! No DEMI!? Recorded...on the ISLAND????? WHAT is HAPPENING?!

Miel will be continuing the podcast (!!!) and there will be tweaks to the show after Demi's departure, not reflected in this interim two-parter. So if you like an informative episode, the warm smell of colitas, and the entire history of EAGLES (no the???) straight from a former industry hot shot, enjoy!
