Episode Zero: An Introduction to Thoughts From The Tinkerage.
I think.  A lot.  I thought I would share some of my thinking.  Not all of my thinking is joined up.  Some of it is.   Talking out loud helps me to get ideas straight.  Sometimes it doesn't.  If I record a podcast it makes me look slightly less for talking out loud when I'm on my own. This is also about legacy, but that's a topic for another time. Some of the things I talk about will be about me, some will be about making and some will be more about life in general. I'd love it if you would jump on board and join me for an adventure into my thoughts. There's a lot I don't know right now like how often episodes will get posted and how long they will be.  I don't know if there will be guests and the structure might change as it evolves. Let me know what you think through my new Instagram account: @thoughtsfromthetinkerage . Or if you already know me then reach out via whatever social media suits you best.   Also let me know if there is anything you would like me to talk about.
