Sorry for the difficulties, trying to track it down but I'm pretty sure it was problems on my end.

If you're interested or think there's someone we should ask directly about being on that episode please let us know.


Along with this -- you might address the difficulty of obtaining fuel stock in areas other than NEPA -- or the demise of the retail coal infrastructure in this country and what could be done -- not to resurrect , but how to deal with it --- I.E. 22 tonTruck loads -- or as some describe it -"hording?"

I didn't have a bit of trouble. Listened to the whole thing.
Sounding a little more comfortable with each show.

From my selfish perspective, Sting is exactly right. Northeast Ohio is a long way from coal country. My interest is not so much about the ethics of buying a large quantity of coal but rather how I can best go about doing so. I'd like to hear about how to get 22 tons delivered from either a rep of one of the larger/more popular breakers and/or a trucking company involved in making these kinds of shipments happen.
With the mindset of the current administration in Washington, I'm guessing you'll have a hard time finding anyone to argue against buying a large quantity of coal today, while we can still afford it.

In spite of the minor technical problem, I enjoyed the last broadcast.
Thank you guys!

Hopefully show #3 will get posted soon. Unfortunately, I was unable to listen to it online due to prior commitments. I am also wondering how well the streaming audio will work with my satellite connection. Satellite connections are poor cousins to cable and only slightly better than dial-up in my opinion. At least my dial up connection never died due to rain or snow!

Thanks in advance,

Will
