The New Chaos Chronicles 308 Podcast is up!

TGIF. Hahaha. My sister Sheila always used to say that on Fridays when we were in the studio for Satellite Sisters. It never failed to make me laugh. And, was fairly ironic, as we also did the show live on Saturday morning at 6am. So really, Fridays was not the end of our work week […]
