Charting the Territories Podcast Companion Piece - Episode 11

Every month, Jon Boucher and I create a podcast that discusses a wide range of topics related to what is covered on this blog. I thought it would be helpful to create a 'companion piece' that goes along with each episode. We often reference web sites, books, YouTube videos, etc., on the podcast, and this companion piece will provide links to many of those materials so that you can see what Jon & I are discussing.

Links will open in a new window. Images from McGuirk programs used with permission from Arcadian Vanguard.


This Companion Piece goes with Episode 11 of the podcast, which can be found at http://chartingthepodcast.com
