EP20: You Ask Me #allthequestions

It's my birthday and I recorded this special episode where YOU asked me questions - some were super difficult to answer because I never really thought about the answers. In this episode, I answered 20 questions - ranging from simple questions about eggs to sharing my failures. You'll have to listen to the entire episode to hear the answers. There are some elements I reference in this episode so I shared links below. If you submitted a question, this was a challenge for me at times so thank you for challenging me.

Here are the 20 questions:

Is it merely a product of its environment, or a natural bi-product / fallout of sharing ideas or reactions in real time?
