Episode 20 The fat lady is singing

Today is the last episode of Droid today. It’s been a fun adventure which I’ve really enjoyed but this was always a month challenge which would only continue if certain goals were met. Unfortunately they weren’t but I don’t mind. I really enjoyed the experience and I hope you enjoyed listening too.

But to finish we have one more episode. Check out the links!
