Despite the odds, the Earth has made it around the sun again and so it is time for Mike Welden to visit the studio. I wasn't sure what Mike had in store when he called me. In the end, it turned out it wasn't anything to be afraid of; a little bit of running, a couple of laughs and good chat with a great person. Mike and I talk a little bit about Many On the Genny, Twisted Branch, and what it might look like if we all started being a bit more human to each other. As with most episodes featuring MIke, the language gets a little saucy, so keep away from sensitive ears if that isn't your thing.

Mike Welden is back. Like literally. Last we heard from Mike, he had just run a smokin 13:34 at Laurel Highlands Ultra. And then, nothing. Where'd he go, what'd he do? Turns out, those answers are "everywhere" and "a lot", mostly. It's complicated. Listen in as Mike, in typical Welden-esque fashion weaves us the tale of a 2017 gone awry and a 2018 on the cusp. Contained herein are jeers, tears and of course swears. Ye Be Warned.
