On Today’s Show:

We’re back with another fun-filled exciting… ok, I have to stop there. Look – I definitely have fun every week and I definitely think our show is exciting but I’ve had some people tell me that it’s not as exciting as I think it is… Either way, I was joined by Todd and James to take your questions and provide the answers to the best of our abilities. I think you’ll learn a lot this week as we had a nice selection of questions.

We want to hear from you!
