MCP 019 – MAKING THE CUT: Chapter 11

Danni has her first real date with a man. Will it be all that she expected? And how is Nate going to react to having a bombshell like Danni living in the apartment?

Note: Chris gives his after-action report on Balticon 42 and gets rather mushy on the subject. If you’d rather not listen to the chatter, skip ahead to about the 14-minute mark.
