A Slice From The Middle

I'm going to have to call this the end of season one (which is twice as long as I had originally intended) but I'm going to do so with a piece that means a lot to me. If you're curious, it took me four times to get through part of it. Thank you for joining me this season, I'll be back in a month or so with season two! If you subscribe on whatever podcatcher you're using, you'll be notified when season two starts. See you then! Bye! (Oh, oops, wrong podcast.)
