The podcast had a birthday! In honor of the milestone, we are posting a revised edition of a fan-favorite from Season 1, Episode 5: Fried Eggs - Starfire GPS History. There have been some updates to the Starfire GPS line since it was posted, so we thought it was worthwhile to add another chapter to the episode.
