Time for your weekly podcast with The Professional Left, otherwise known as our own Driftglass and Bluegal and on a very sad note, Driftie's stepfather passed away today; the decision to put him into hospice care being one of the topics in the podcast that they recorded a bit earlier this week.

For anyone that did know this already, Driftglass and Fran are getting married a little later on this summer and they are still planning on attending Netroots Nation this year despite the very sad turn of events for them this week.

If anyone would like to send them a note with their condolences, well wishes on their upcoming marriage, letting them know if you're going to be attending Netroots Nation as well, or with comments about the podcast in general, the email for the podcast is or of course you can just do that here as well or over at either of their personal blogs linked above. They may not have much time to return emails for a while though, so keep that in mind if you decide to send them a message. If you're on Facebook they also have a page there at The Professional Left Podcast with Driftglass and Blue Gal.

You can listen to the archives at and there is also a donate button there if you'd like to send them a few bucks so they can afford to keep doing their podcasts every week.
