The podcast has reached a major milestone, and this is the 100th episode of the show!
To celebrate the 100th episode we had a question and answer session with astrologers Chris Brennan, Patrick Watson, Leisa Schaim, and Nick Dagan Best.
The day before we recorded the episode we put out a call for questions from listeners and patrons of the show, and we ended up with a lot of questions! There were so many questions in fact that we only got through maybe half of them or less in this episode, so we will probably do a followup Q&A episode in April in order to answer the rest.
We ran into some technical issues in recording this episode, and were not sure if it was going to be salvageable, but our sound engineer was able to save the day and piece together a full episode from what we gave him. The initial part of the discussion is just between Chris, Patrick, and Leisa, and then about 54 minutes in Nick joined the show.
