EYE Chart Radio

This week's episode marks the end of an era. In podcasting terms, that's three or four years. It has been a ton of fun being on this show with Ken and when I took the reins at the beginning of 2017.

I was very fortunate to work with a bunch of great co-hosts; Chuck Joiner, David Ginsburg, Adam Christianson, BigJD, Richard Gunther, Mark Fuccio, Barry Fulk, Kelly Guimont and Allison Sheridan.

On this episode Ken Ray and I talk about the history of the show and look forward with a conversation about what we're looking forward to seeing.

Most of all, I would like to thank all the folks who've been listening since the beginning as well as even one-time listeners. Please head over to my Patreon page and give a one-time payment of any amount. It'll help offset the costs of my next creative endeavor....I'd appreciate it very much. See ya soon!

Au revoir,

Mike
