A friend that I’ve never met


The year was 1988.  I was an Oklahoma high school junior, plopped down in front of the family's trusty Sony Trinitron.  That's when I heard it the first time: the iconic voiceover from the legendary Don LaFontaine saying, "It's Christmas Eve in L.A...and New York cop John McLain has got to see his wife..."  I [...]

Welcome to the Trail!


There are few things as exciting to me as a new frontier...stepping out into something I've never explored, and seeing what adventure lies beyond the next bend.  This new podcast is like that.  Well, not exactly.
