The last 2 episodes have had Shannon’s mic be extra bassy/boomy compared to Marc and Matt to the point I had to turn volume down when he was speaking for a longer segment.

Glad you guys got a sponsor and are back at it. Really love having the show to listen to.

It’s pretty easy to replace a few tiles of the vinyl planks. Get a few extra tiles and replace whatever you bust when you’re moving out.

I learned more about hand planes in the last 5 minutes than the Dude on YouTube has taught me in 5 months!
Great show guys!
