Before we get started this week, we have to do a little bill paying… We have officially used up all of our free storage space on our podcast hosting server. This means that unless we want to take content down (which would mean no access to our previous episodes), we need to upgrade and start paying a month fee for storage. The smallest storage package should hold us over for quite a while, and luckily this is only $10 a month. Why are we telling you this? Because this is a free podcast that The Gals don’t profit from, we need a little help with those fees. We have added a donate button right over there =======>
If you want to help us out, all you have to do is click it and fill in how much you would like to donate. Anything helps! If you only have $1 to donate, then we will gladly take it. You can set your donation up as monthly or just do a onetime donation. Hopefully before we have to upgrade again, we will get some sponsors and we won’t have to bug our awesome listeners for donations.
This week The Gals talked about sealants. Sharon and Katie went through their favorite sealants and talked a little about what they use each for and why. Naturally, their conversation got a little weird when discussing proper ventilation and the odor of some sealants, but that just means more entertainment for you!
Here are the sealants they discussed today.
