Ephemeral Rift Podcast – Episode 1

The official Ephemeral Rift podcast is back (formally known as EphemRadio)! This is where I get to relax and unload whatever is on my mind and YOU get to hear the real me without a filter. In this episode I touch on the topics of the Coronavirus, its impact on society and technology, trying to obtain a PS5 or Nvidia graphics card, alcohol and being alcohol free, patience and anger, cannabis and laws in the United States, losing interest in things once passionate about, and an idea if you are trying to gain confidence in yourself.
