We are back!! So sorry to have kept you waiting.  This episode has some commentary in the beginning you can skip through and jump right into the Valley Fever content if you want around the 15min mark.  Then we talk about Valley Fever and its history..  More fascinating that I first realized.  

By the say, I accidentally cuss in the first 15 mins which is why i have it as explicit content, no other reason.  
Enjoy!
