Welcome everyone to magic number 99 – the summer is coming to an end! Back to school and back to work season is coming – luckily I got a couple more years before my kid goes to school and I start paying those bills! Good motivation to keep pushing!

A big announcement, I’m ready to announce Wendy and I are have our second kid on the way! Due end of Jan, right around Chinese New Year. I’ll put a post up on my personal blog (mikesblog.com) and link it up on show notes if you want to read the details.

So next week I will launch Global From Asia TV! Ya, I’m finally over being shy to put my voice online, so let’s take it up another notch and do videos. I have a few pre-recorded and will start releasing them every other Tuesday. So 1 week will be audio podcast that you’re listening to, and the alternating week will be a video show.

K, enough of the announcements, let’s get into the meat of today’s show – we have my friend Andy Church on the show. He is a huge source of knowledge about quality control and gives us some overview of the process and terms you should be knowledgeable. Some things I even heard the first time, so let’s get our notebooks out and here we go:
