*The content of Ep.9 has been updated* Dave has made some small but important changes to the content, if you have the previous version of this episode you can kick that one aside and make this version your new best friend. 

** In addition, our website and our podcast platforms had a fight this morning, the video version of episode 9 barged through the door and jump into the podcast feed! It has since been removed. We apologizes for this confusion, the videos are available exclusively in the members area at Thank you!
