6:30 Topic: It’s not them; it IS you

25:30 Notice—Volunteers to help promote the show with GaggleAmp
I’m trying out GaggleAmp to see if any fans would be willing to receive weekly notices from PW to help promote the show. Look for invites on Facebook and Twitter and, if you so choose, repost the messages about the show on Twitter or Facebook when they arrive. Thanks if you participate and no worries if you don’t!
