Machine Learning, Checking Boxes and Fighting Fear
Shane is an old friend of mine, a high school era acquaintance with whom I have many things in common, including our age, the number and ages of our kids, many of our interests. For that reason, perhaps it’s a bit narcissistic to have him on as the first guest, but folks – he’s an amazing fella I’m privileged to have had on the show.
Folks, it was so much fun recording the first episode with my friend and fellow hobby collector, Shane Murphy. Thanks so much, Shane!
