Let’s start with the back story: Russ Henneberry is a good friend and mentor. I have learned a great deal from him about building websites and Internet marketing, among other things. Regularly, I would go to his site to read his latest article. On one occasion, I noticed an audio icon near the top of the latest post. Not knowing what to expect, I clicked on it.
