My beautiful children, whom I love, passed me a pretty bad cold on Friday and my voice has been thrashed ever since. I kept hoping it would clear up so I could record, but it's not happening. Tried and failed. So we're in a holding pattern. When I stop sounding like an 85 year old pirate I will record and publish the launch of the Hungarian Revolution... Mike Continue reading

Hello Friends, Unfortunately, I was hit by a combination of ailments this week that left me unable to get much work done. It's been a pretty miserable couple of days. I'm better now and back at it, but there's too much of a mountain to climb to get the next episode out on Sunday night. Look for it Tuesday. Then we'll be back on regular schedule for Ep. 7.07. Sorry about that, Mike PS If you are here now because you found yourself waiting, waiting, waiting for the new episode to post and it kept not posting, that means you like Revolutions and it is a meaningful part of your life! I'm very glad to hear it...and...um...ahem... Pre-Order The Storm Before the Storm! Amazon Powells Barnes & Noble Indiebound Books-a-Million Continue reading
