We realize there’s been a slight lag since the last episode. Rest assured we’re working on more great episodes and appreciate your patience. The show is a labor of love and some of that labor has had to go towards other areas recently. But there are some exciting changes coming to ToxTalk in the next few months and we think you’ll like them. So all we ask of you is to keep us in your subscription feed via iTunes or the mailing list or however you listen, and that way you’ll be there to see them. Those going through tox withdrawal can checkout our Twitter feed @ToxTalk which is still active or maybe checkout episodes you haven’t heard.
