Key West This Week 25

Have you ever tried to find someplace quiet in Key West? I mean really quiet where you can get a drink and record a podcast? It can be harder than you think. We recorded at one of our favorite hangouts, 2 Cents. There were patrons at the bar that were having a really good time, and we don’t begrudge anyone a good time in Key West, but their laughter often interrupts the podcast. Lucy is great, and we are really excited about her new book. I think you’ll enjoy this podcast, if you can be forgiving of the ambient noise. At least I can sincerely say that this is the most laugh filled podcast we’ve done.
