DrupalEasy Podcast 75: Andrew’s Birthday

Drew Gorton and Ronan Dowling from Nodesquirrel.com join Andrew Riley, Ryan Price, Mike Anello, and a mystery guest(!?) on the 75th episode of the podcast. Nodesquirrel is a new Drupal site database backup service that integrates seamlessly with the Backup and Migrate module. Listen in as we discuss the Drupal 8 timeline, the mystery guest takes a geography quiz, and we all do our very best not to mention that it's Andrew’s birthday (spoiler alert - we succeed!)
