I always have a blast talking with Mr. Matera and this episode was no different! I would suggest opening up this video in YouTube and leaving a comment (actually I would hope you leave a comment below too). Mr. Matera is also trying to build a YouTube community similar to his #XPLAP Twitter community so if you are interested hit the subscribe button.
