Dr Dave's Blog & Podcast Homepage

Est 2009
All of my Podcasts and blogs are
here each week.

Each week I publish the Freewheelin' video Q&A show and each month an episode of Blunt Dissection Podcast. I also publish articles randomly from time to time. 

In order to submit a question to freewheelin' please record a video and following the format closely:

1. State who you are and where you are from.
2. Ask your question as concisely as possible, it must be under 30 seconds long.

3. Upload your video using this form.


We do not guarantee to answer all questions, especially ones that have been answered previously.
