Episode 42: Perfectly Good Podcast – REDACTED

Perfectly Good Podcast Season 2In Episode 42 we thought about telling you the theme, but then you would enter into this thing with a preconceived set of expectations. So we have a little experiment – how’s about we <REDACT> the theme and then you get in touch on Twitter and Facebook and tell us what YOU think it is?! Sound good?

Episode Notes:

You know what, adding show notes here would also skew your expectations. But trust me – there is some Theatre of the Mind with a brand new dice rolling app – blinddie.com that allows us to *actually* play randomly. Big thanks to Mike Berman (@scriptist) for this awesome program. Along with a song and plenty of laughs.

Enjoy friends!
