Is Frost the Snowman an Irish Song...?
I'm certain it is. It's super popular in Blarney. That's why I gave the story an Irish twist. See for yourself.
I Screwed Up... It's Gonna Hurt!
The podcast is funded entirely by you thanks to Patreon. Except when I screw up and don't charge for a show.
That's what I did in November. I forgot to charge for the Thanksgiving episode. That means I will have a $550 shortfall in funding this month. I screwed up.
This is the worse time of year for such a shortfall. I would like to humbly ask for your help.
