Agree or Disagree: The Podcast-Interview with Terry Lo aka @calgarydreamer
Steven Britton and I interview Terry about his recent decision to resign from his position within the WRP.
One of the advantages of doing a podcast is we can spend more time discussing an issue more in depth. It allows us to get a full perspective on what happened.
The story of Terry's resignation took a life of it's own. As such, there were some issues that may have been missed. We cover these topics. Because of the nature and length of this conversation, we decided to break this up in 2 parts.
