Mark & Wes, in Emeryville, CA at the Asqew Grill
This episode is dedicated to Al Bernay, who passed away on July 10th. Mark talks about the history of the Mark Bernay Society, the fact that Al was truly the original PodCaster, and his involvement in the beginning of something that affected the future of technology and the generation of kids who took pleasure in experimenting with phones and equipment. This is the first of two shows where we will talk about Al and how important he was to young people, as well as us older ones.
