Episode 117.5 – Amended

For the first time ever, I decided to amend an episode of the PVDcast. After watching the first round of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, my original picks didn’t do so well. So, I am back on this episode to give my insights on my original picks & make some new ones. I review what I’ve been up to these past few weeks, talk about what legendary rap duo I found on Twitter & talk about my upcoming appearance on the 3 Geeks Podcast. It’s a super-short, but pretty fun installment.
