Greetings! We’re getting set up for the summer season of interviews and working on some pretty big partners, but we really need your help to get the ball rolling. You can help by giving us a review on iTunes. I know everyone asks for it, but we have not. Unfortunately, when sponsors look at our page and see that we have only 8 reviews, they wonder about our awesomeness, hence the request. So here are the beginnings of summer for The Trailer and the instructions on how to do the deed. Thanks.
