CSM8 Summer Summit

Hello faithful listeners!

You might have noticed that a few weeks have gone by since our last release; this is due to the fact that Ali Aras has been in Iceland for the CSM8 Summer Summit! So instead of spending the last week squeezing a drunk CSM rep for information, we decided to take a week off and record a super important, all-inclusive winter summit episode early this week.

As usual thanks for listening and we’ll see you soon.
