Greetings!

After an (unintenionally) long delay, Episode 43 of the MBS Podcast is here! Greg and Andy catch up a bit, and then spend a little time looking back at 2019 and looking forward to what 2020 may have in store!

This will unfortunately be the last episode for about 6 months, due to Andy's upcoming deployment. MBS will be back and better than ever starting in June/July 2020, so see you then!

Check out what we think in this edition of Ruckdog's Report. BE WARNED! This episode is full of spoilers for the first two books in the series!
