Late last month, we had the opportunity to speak with Frank Barbiere as he prepared the launch of his latest title, The Revisionist. Due to some outside circumstances, we weren't able to record new shows or post the interview, so this is a little late.

Thanks again to Frank, and our apologies for the late posting. Enjoy!
