I’m super excited about the Podcast 2.0 project and the features we have implemented at my Day Job (Blubrry.com). It feels to me very much like Podcasting felt back in the beginning of podcasting 2004-2005. I go over some of those features and why YOU might be interested as a listener OR podcaster. The good old days are back! In other subjects, I have started what is known as the Carnivore diet or PHD (Proper Human Diet) in hopes of improving my health. I talked quite a bit about it in this episode. To help me NOT bore everyone I know with it, I have started an Audio blog (read Podcast DOh!) called My Carnivore Health Journey. It’s available here: https://mikedell.com/carnivore-2/ It’s a blog as well as a podcast where I will post more personal progress on my health journey and other things of interest to the carnivore community. Wish me luck! This podcast is posted on MikeDell.com Go there and subscribe!

Normally by now, here in Traverse City, we woudl have a foot or 2 of snow on the ground. This year we are snow free. We have had the “normal” amount of snow, some 50 inches, this season but it melts off right after it falls. Not that I’m complaining, I will take it. The forecast for the next 2 weeks is more of the same. Some snow, melt off and some rain. Temps are going to be way above normal.
