Ep. 81: What’s In Your Tech Bag w/ Al Thomas

In this episode, I am joined by Al Thomas to discuss the burning question, “What’s in your tech bag?”. A couple of weeks ago, I created a Flipgrid topic and asked for people to show us what’s in their tech bag. Al and I go through those responses and give our thoughts before we go through ours. If you’d like to see the videos as well as Al and I going through our tech bags, this podcast was recorded with video as well and is available on YouTube. So tune in and check out if our tech bags have anything in common with yours. Buen provecho!
