This is also, hopefully, being seen as nothing more than a metaphorical tap on the shoulder and gentle nudge back in the right direction for many of those in that vocal minority.

I got the privilege of being invited up to the bridge of the station for a look back at 2016 with the crew of the Earth Station One podcast. Listen in and enjoy as Mike Faber & Mike Gordon chat about the year that was with Ashley Pauls and Keith Johnson, and then try to suffer through my bits long enough to get back to the good stuff.
