Marching Roundtable Podcasts

First off, I think the Marching Roundtable is great. Tim Hinton and Dr. Joe Allison are two awesome guys to work with and their passion for the activity is as good as it comes.

When I first joined the Rhythm X, Inc. team these guys at the Roundtable invited me to do a podcast on earplugs at X as a follow-up to a hearing protection podcast they had previously done. I'm a huge fan of Etymotic Research. I even endorse them in an official capacity as a "Signature ETYHead" so that led us on to this hearing protection topic. 

That podcast quickly turned into two, the second about our then-upcoming season at Rhythm X. You can listen to both of those podcasts here and here. I've also embedded them below.

The Marching Roundtable does a lot of good in our activity. They recently started a program called The Judges Academy, an educational series for aspiring pageantry judges, educators, and fans. I was happy to be a beta tester for them. It's a pleasure to work with these guys in any capacity!
