Anahita Podcast Episode 4

This is episode 4 of Anahita Podcast recorded from the Wed. January 11th 2012 Google Hangout session with Scott (from www.BeerLovers.com), Rob Saric and Steve from the Anahita Tribes as well Ash Sanieyan, the co-founder and developer of Anahita. In this podcast we’ve had a bit of sound problem. Rob and Steve were sharing a connection and Scott was actually joining us from a coffee shop, so in certain parts of the podcast the audio quality is not as good as it should be. We apologize for that. These sessions are done using the Google Hangout.
