Progress Report

Hi, you're no doubt wondering where I've been, since I was supposed to restart the podcast six months ago. The short explanation is that without a car, I lack the necessary free time to be able to do the show. And while I'm doing my best to get a car, or find a job closer to home, if you'd like to help me with this, so I can get back to releasing regular episodes, please consider donating to help support me. You can find a donate button by going to the show notes page here: http://bootstrappingtheplanet.blogspot.com/2016/06/progress-report.html
