GNC-2009-12-15 #536 Big Announcement Today



First of all folks I may have to go on Emergency travel, if I do I will have a guest host step in. No details I am willing to talk about at this point but I could be gone a couple of weeks. Second thing I make a pretty major announcement on the show which is surely to drive some comments one way or the other. But I explain all in detail on the show. Don’t worry I’m not changing anything show stays the same.
