Blog Oklahoma Podcast 69: a small cold dark north facing windowless office

It's just too hot, too dusty, and too cat infested at the home office right now to do a podcast. So I brought my podcasting equipment down to the small cold dark north facing windowless office, all in the hopes I can do at least an adequate job in a cool cat free environment.
For those of you unfamiliar with the small cold dark north facing windowless office, it's my day job office. It's a small office located on the north side of the building and I have no windows. In the winter time the Oklahoma wind howls, and it makes this office ever so cold. Plus I have a light that's going out, so it's dark. Thus it's a small cold dark north facing windowless office.
I don't think I'll make it a habit to record here, but at least for the time being it will have to do.
I would like to remind everyone to go vote on Tuesday July 27th for the Oklahoma Primary Election. Polls are open from 7 AM to 7 PM. Even if you are not registered Republican or Democrat, I would encourage you to stop by your polling place, you may have a local election you can participate in. If you are unsure where your polling place is, contact your local county elections board. You can find its number in the phone book or by visiting OK.gov/elections.
