These are the notes I took while hosting T is for Training 329 “This Sucks, Start Over.” Read Jill’s Organized and otherwise awesome recap.
Live notes help me both remember excellent quotes and select a name title, since the title of the show is always something said in the podcast. [I did this before Lucifer, btw.]
