    1. If you mean the show notes, yes, I’m clearing some schedule to stay on top of them. As for Todd Stevens, we’re hoping to have him on for each set review and we may even be working on some bonus content. Stay tuned.

      1. He seems like a solid guy. You guys are taking a step in the right direction with him around. Are there plans to cover From the Vault: Transform and its financial impacts in the next show? I feel that a lot of relative ground could be covered there.
