It’s part two of the “Koester Chronicles,” covering lots of interesting topics such as the origins of “Trains of Thought” and all those unpublished versions.

Here at the ole’ AML World Headquarters we've been concerned that the Kelly Questions weren’t very popular anymore… Kinda boring and uninteresting but we decided it was time to test the waters again.

It’s always fun to catch-up with folks who’ve been on the podcast before, so on this episode we visit with Tom and Bill who discovered each other through their YouTube channels. It’s a great example of the friendships that are being created through social media. They’ve become great friends and learn a lot from each other, so we thought we’d share it with the rest of the AML Nation.
