153 2020 Thank You-cast Extravaganza!

2020 Something Ventured Celebration


An episode in which I thank each of the 2020 guests.  A podcast first (probably).  In which I briefly recall – fondly – a bit of each of the 2020 episodes. Is it interesting?  I think so.  Can I do it in one take?  Turns out, yes.  Enjoy, and thank you for listening.
