Afternoon Live–Cocoa Mix

I’m popping in today with a link to my appearance on Afternoon Live, a talk show here in Portland.  It was first delayed by Bernie Sanders, then preempted because of snow, but it finally aired yesterday.  I felt like my usual awkward self while it was being filmed, but I’m pretty happy with the way…
