Podcasting’s most underrated: Vivian Vasquez

I met Vivian Vasquez at Podcasters Across Borders. At the time, I thought that Vivian was there in loving support of her husband, Andy Bilodeau (AndyCast).

A Police reunion – it’s about time!!!

Several people have asked why I haven’t yet blogged about the upcoming Grammy performance of The Police, my favourite band. The fact is, I don’t know what to say.
