We are joined by Grant McHerron from Plane Crazy Down Under and get to discuss how he became a balloonatic and what makes PCDU work so well.
Also, Anthony Limberg from BasicSix calls into the show to tell us about their innovative T-shirts. You can get a 10% discount on all BasicSix T-shirts by using the promo code ‘Xtended’.
We look at the news and have a new segment from Tim called ‘X10 Our Top 10’, as well as a new #PodsChallenge and some great GetInvolved listener engagement.
