So we published Episode 2 today and though biased I have to say it is pretty entertaining.

We chatted with Monica about her story, discussed questions from the site, built a world together and offered a few personal recommendations...all in a somewhat verbose manner.

Hope that you all enjoy it, please feel free to leave comments here or on YouTube and let us know what you think, and feel free to subscribe as well.

Thanks to my co-hosts Monica, Green and Nex
