#206: Bait, I Guess


Today we chat about some product launches we’ve recently prepared. Joe talks about why he didn’t spend much time on launching the update to his app Fin, Charles talks about some of the email sequences he’s planning for RelaNet, and we both chat about the preparations we’re making for the May 1st launch of Release Notes 2017.
