Octavian Family Tree:

Over One Million Served!

Last week TAW hit its latest major milestone - the million download mark!And I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you dedicated listeners for making it happen. This podcast has obviously gone on much longer, and reached a much wider audience, than I ever envisioned, and I really appreciate all the support and encouragement you’ve given me along the way.

Also, just so you know, I am completely obsessed with “Bloodline,” so you can count on plenty more episodes coming your way over the weeks and months to come.

Take care, and thanks again! Scott C.
