What the Shell: Michele Ivey Interview

Welcome back shellheads to another interview on the first TMNT podcast – What the Shell!
This time we have our first female on the show thanks to the passionate Michele Ivey. Michele was a tremendous person to talk to and had plenty of stories to share with the hosts thanks to her brilliant blog on Cowabunga Corner. Unfortunately Mike Lacey couldn’t participate in the interview but fear not as Dylan, Chris and Suine have a few questions for Michele to answer. How did she become so obsessed with TMNT?
