Happy Friday everyone. This week has been damn near tropical in terms of weather in Philadelphia, and not in a good way. Clouds, sun, clouds, rain, clouds. With that being said, I still had time to fit in a great podcasting session with Ed Pizzarello from Pizza in Motion, where we recorded the next episode of the NowBoarding podcast as well as a segment for Ed’s Miles to Go podcast. Very productive week and here’s to an even more productive weekend (of beer and pizza)!
