Hello everyone!

This is the third episode of TMRR.

We are moving away from SoundCloud to Podbean, which is why the link looks a little different. Nothing wrong with SoundCloud, but Podbean has a much better podcast plan.

If you like the podcast and find it useful, please go ahead and just let anyone, who you think might be interested in TMRR topics, know about it.

Thanks again for listening. Just click on the immediate link below to get the episode.
