Not a whole lot. Wish we had clinicals during the summer.

In Other News:
I lost a friend from high school yesterday. The song at the end of the podcast is a song he wrote called "Look Ma, No Hands" which always reminds me of the good times we had together. Sorry for the unusual sound effects in the beginning; we were goofballs in high school :-)
