Recall Knowledge – Fast March

Every week, Recall Knowledge recaps the Know Direction content of the past week, a preview of the Know Direction content of the week to come, and the director of operations, Ryan Costello, thoughts on the state of the network.

You can rewrite lost text, you can redraw a lost image, but you can’t rerecord lost audio.

If you’re tired of hearing illness updates, you can skip this week’s editorial.

My bronchitis meds ran out Thursday. I’m still coughing. That means either it isn’t bronchitis, or it’s super bronchitis. Because local clinics aren’t seeing patients with cough symptoms, I have phone consultations. I’m on hold as we speak to book my next appointment.

This is the longest I’ve gone without podcasting that I can remember. We have an Adventurous recording scheduled for this Friday, April 2nd, which I believe marks my first recording since February 24th. It’s like March didn’t happen!

But it did happen It’s still happening. Here’s a recap of the March 2021 Know Direction Network content you might have missed last week:
