Programming Note: So took 93 episodes but what happened to all podcasts finally happened to Pages and Panels, I had an audio fuck up. There was an issue with the recording software and it only recorded Ryan's end of the call. The only way I could think of saving the episode was to re-record some of my answers and cut it together. So there is no back and forth normal conversation, its just a question and then answer type thing. I apologize, figured out the issue so wont happen again!
