Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter July 2, 2023

  Last week I don't believe I got a single issue of the Hot Finds ready and published. So to begin my 5th week here at Barstow I wanted to make sure and turn that around.

    I am still getting my sea legs underneath me as I figure out my strategy for the Live Show on Wednesday nights. What I see lots of content creators doing is having a standard show and then mixing in some completely different formats. So for example tomorrow I'll have my final part of the interview with Tico Perez...Read More

    Wow! Maybe I forgot how massive these TORs are after four years or maybe the layout and energy of this one is just better. But Day #1 of this Pre-NOAC TOR was awesome.
