EPISODE OUTLINES 2020

Outlines from episodes recorded in 2020

We began recording in 2019 and there is a separate page for outlines recorded in each year.  We organize them by date recorded and not date published. These are just our rough notes so please forgive typos, etc. NOTE: The COVID-19 pandemic struck in March 2020 which changed our recording schedule (and life as we had known it).  During the pandemic, we recorded COVID-specific episodes and they are listed by the date of recording.
