On this week's show, I've decided to completely pause the schedule and remember the amazing Ryan McCabe, who sadly lost his life this week. I really don't have words to describe how amazing Ryan was.

He was a guest on the show twice in 2020 I felt it was appropriate to remember Ryan by replaying the episode we record ..read more
