Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand. — Mark Twain

Why did Julie Ostrow cross the road?  To get to the AATH conference!  Yes, on this episode I'm talking with Julie Ostrow about our conference experiences over the past decade AND what we're looking forward to in going to this year's conference!

This year's conference?  It's the 4th through the 7th of April in Oak Brook, IL.  That's right outside of Chicago.  You can fly into O'hare, grab a slice of DEEP DISH pizza and then get ready to learn with your new tribe!  Get onboard now and don't miss out!  Go to and let's get our laugh on!

Here's a little more on Julie.  For the record, Julie was my first guest on the show and continues to be one of my favorites.  She's always fun and insightful!
