From Dave:
“In 2005 I said podcasting was going to change the world, and it is – and continues to on a daily basis. For me, podcasting is a mixture of everything I love. It's creative, it's technical, and its a way that I can help people. While I love playing the guitar, podcasting is my ultimate passion.”
