The Tin Shop is found!!
After checking in from time to time on the web cams, I feel as if I was a part of the discovery.
Going from a suspicion, to a theory, to proof is quite a tribute to the staff.
I can’t help but wonder, What’s next?
Keep up the good work!

You said the magic words…making people feel part of the discovery is exactly what we hoped to do. And you’re right: suspicion to theory to proof is a satisfying progression.
As for pondering “what’s next”…we’re not there yet. Still digesting the bounty on our plates!

I subscribe to your weekly podcast using Goggle Listen. The last couple of weeks the feed seems to be having a problem. The latest new episodes seem to be a year or more old. There are also many new episodes showing up; all old. The Tin Shop podcast is not one of them as of yesterday. Is there a problem or is this on my side?
Keep up the great work. I can’t wait to visit.
