Endgame Ukuleles, Fretboard Markers, and a Uke Buying Checklist

When do you know what Uke is your "Soul" Uke? Is there ever really an Endgame Ukulele? We try to tackle these questions this week, along with giving a ukulele buyers checklist and answering some questions about 5 or more stringed ukuleles. The end of the podcast is spent talking about Up and Coming Ukulele Stars, and Proving that We're still "Hip".
