OS 1113: Welcome Back to Old Stomping Grounds

It seems like it’s been forever since things even started to seem normal.  After weeks and weeks of “safer at home” and “flatten the curve”, we’re starting see some signs that we may be on the way back to business as usual…or as close as we can come to it, anyway.

The same holds true for Capt. Kevin, Jeff and Capt. Kirk, as they made their return to the studio for this episode, and they were able to spend their time talking about fishing and turkeys and gear and food and all the things they’ve talked about for over 20 years.

There’s no place like home.
