Between the recording of the previous podcast and this one you will hopefully soon be listening to, many people have died. However such as life is, many of those people passed away without being remembered by the world at large. They will be remembered by their friends, family, and colleagues, but you may hear their name and not even know of their passing.
Such also is life that noteable people pass away too. In this instance two notable musicians (though notable in the worldview sense) have passed: David Bowie and Lemmy Kilmister. Though this podcast isn't a tribute to them, consider this sentence to be one.
However what didn't die is this podcast. I would happily trade its life for that of Bowie or Kilmister or any deceased individual but again...such is life.
Joined on this podcast is the author's normal co-host Matthew LaMar. Alongside him is Royals Review contributor Josh Ward.
