In this podcast we gather some of the most influential people in the mineral-collecting world and we chat about minerals over breakfast.
Hosted by Dallas-based mineral collectors Gail and Jim Spann, we get together at the Fine Mineral Show: Tucson (aka The Westward Look Show) and at the Fine Mineral Show: Denver and discuss relevant topics affecting all collectors.
