Erik Buchanan Sounds like fun. How does one subscribe to your podcast - receive an alert when a new one happens? I don't listen to many podcasts (limited time) so I don't know these things.

I thought you might be interested in my new podcast where I read my book reviews. A new one drops every Tuesday at
