    Episode 71: The Anatomy Of A Failed Relationship…again.

    I’ve got some stuff going on and I’ve spent all of my free time this week working on the Catching Up show that I do with my friend Joe.  If you haven’t listened to it, give it a try.

    So this week I’m running another rerun.  It’s in my top five favorite WSWCL episodes.  It’s reaching way back into the archive, so hopefully it’s new to you or you don’t remember it much.

    Episode 68: More Drinks With Jam And Bread

    This past weekend, while sitting in a dark theater watching a staging of one of my favorite musicals, I remembered writing episode 16 of What Some Would Call Lies. When I went back to listen, I realized that I published that episode almost exactly one year ago. I called that episode A Drink With Jam And Bread.

    And I decided that instead of writing a story and recording this week, I’m going to play a re-run of that episode since it is certainly one of my favorites.

    I hope you enjoy it.
