Show Notes

Quick Episode Summary

Does anybody use these time stamps, either here in the show notes, or in your podcast app? If so, please let me know in the comments below or on the hotline (770) 458-3838… Otherwise, their future is uncertain. 🤔

I put these in a couple of episodes starting around maybe Ep. 31 (St. Pete Boat Show). I’m not sure I really want to encourage folks to jump around during the narrative shows; but it seemed like a nice thing to do for shows like today’s.
