2017-09-27 Pre-Interview

I am amazed that media can find TNKR. We don’t have a communications team, we don’t have a main person connecting with media. We don’t have a media list. I can’t remember the last time that we tried to connect with media.

Today I had an pre-interview with a pair of reporters. By the way, after they finished listening to me talk non-stop about TNKR, they decided there may be a story worth reporting.
