(MM2) Production Notes

Wow. A truck of personal chaos crashed into my life over the last 24 hours. Sorry this episode is a few hours late! That probably won’t happen again.

I must mention that Bram Bakker began a Metropolitan Man podcast of his own a couple months ago, which I was unaware of. :( I feel terrible, I didn’t mean to step on his project. I wish him the best, please take a moment to check it out if you’re interested in another take on this story. He is very graciously providing the voice of Perry White for my version, thank you Bram!
