This week I was invited to participate in a panel discussion of the year in review, as the hosts and guests of this program discuss popular geek and nerd topics that are relevant both locally and globally.  This panel was made of a number of local community members who had a few thoughts on 2015, an were not afraid to share them.  This was a lot of fun, and I’ve been invited back to be a guest again, which I’m very much looking forward to.  As a bonus, here’s the hour long show, as it was heard on KMUZ.

Enjoy!
