Earlier this month, I told you I got the Amazon Echo and after playing around with it a bit, decided to do a show with her. The idea is to learn what are called Alexa Skills so I can get Lone Star Gridiron content out in a voice-first format.  Since she is a voice-first device, I thought it was only fitting that this post be a voice-first take as well. Give it a listen, and then give me some feedback.

The 9867 refers to this being the 9,867th podcast I have created since my first one back in 2014.
