Along with many in the podcasting community, we've recorded a PSA (Public Service Announcement) to help raise funds for the relief effort. Rather than do the traditional Red Cross PSA, I created one for a charity organization that I'm personally involved with ... and one that I'm confident is providing relief to the area.
