It has been my experience as a Scouter, that I have questions that I need answered, at the most inopportune times…late at night and on the weekends.
What I did was look to the internet, and found a lot of great sites, but the first one that grabbed me as being scout-friendly, was PTC Media.
As I listened to Chris, Steve and Jerry, I found the questions that I needed answered came in the form of the great PTC forums and the great PTC shows.
I ventured, first into a blog, and then with some goading, into a podcast.
As a Unit Commissioner, I brought some of the things that I learned to the internet, eventually turning that into a show about pointing your compass True North, with topics ranging from troop formation to webelos2scout transition.
I hope that you enjoy my shows, and all of the other shows on PTC. Thanks
