Episode 204 – eBay for profit not stress

Episode 203 – Magical Mystery Tour



Podcast is a day late, but for good reason, as I unexpectedly got a free trip away to look at electric cars!

I also talk about my Black Friday deals, especially my new Nvidia Shield, and I have fallen in love with the iPad Pro, but can’t quite afford one yet!
