I recorded this podcast with our friend and loyal P1, Roger Popa when he was receiving treatment for his second bout with Leukemia in the Spring of 2017. We recorded it right in his hospital room and an undisclosed medical facility in Northern Michigan on a Saturday morning. Rest in Peace, Roger! You will me missed!!
