We had the honor of having Dan Arel on the show last week. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties we lost the recording. Thankfully Dan was super cool and understanding and agreed to come back on the show in January. Tom and Cecil cover some of the stories they recorded with Dan from his blog Danthropology.
