UPDATE: There seems to be a syncing issue with Amanda's track at about the 41 minute mark and it lasts for about 10 minutes, and in my infinite amateurishness I have failed to have the proper file to edit it and fix it. So my apologies! Remember, Amanda is not psychic, she just plays a psychic on the podcast, for about 10 minutes.

This week on the Conversation Thing, Patrick, Derek and I welcomed fellow podcasters and wonderful people from out Rocky Mountain Way, Edward and Amanda Uhler. A lot laughs were had and if you listen closely and take good notes, you may get your next favorite recipe!
