Join us as we welcome back the podcast after a long hiatus! Mary and Danielle join the podcast once again to give insights on their time as flight instructors dring the past year and Jonathan gives updates on new episodes and how to watch the podcast as it is recorded live on YouTube! Note: This Podcast episode has been recorded live on YouTube, be sure to go to our channel and see these recordings as they are made! Since this was the first live recording we have done, there were some technical glitches and the fist 15-18 minutes of audio was pulled directly from the broadcast. This was because the sound board did not start recording until this point for the digital audio. But, we fixed it! Hopefully someone wont forget to push record next time...
