Love this Idea
Thanks for this show. I agree with your reasons for using markdown. It gets out of your way so you can write. I also find the idea of using git interesting, but I would be concerned about privacy. I guess you can host your own gitlab...
Can't wait for your next show.

Nice show! Sweet script! Is it up on a public git repo somewhere?
TL;DR Would you mind adding a licence?
You might think of it as just a little, personal convenience script that doesn't mean much, that anyone can adapt if they please right? But, technically speaking, you've got the copyright (by default) and I can't legally use this code.
You may consider it open source by being on a web page that is covered by the CC-BY-SA licence but they advise against it's use for software as it doesn't explicitly cover distribution of source code (see https://creativecommons.org/faq/#can-i-apply-a-creative-commons-license-to-software).
I ask you to consider adding a licence to make it clear what people can do with your script. I'd sure love to use it but, if I make changes and want to share it, we're in a grey area ;)

Version with copyright notice
Thanks for the feedback. Here is a link to the script with an ISC license header.

question about the script
I love your script idea and will probably be copying lots of it. THANKS!
however, in the last "for" loop where you cat your files into the new "README" file, i don't understand this bit:
$(ls -r $DAILYPATH/2*md)
more specifically, the "2*/md" bit. Is this some kind of BASH specific notation? Is this a Mac thing?
OTW, great episode and very helpful!

There isnt anything special about "2*/md". All the files that I want combined into the readme are named by date and have the md suffix. so "2*/md" matches 2016-12-01.md as well as all the other daily files. The only reason for "2*/md" to be there is incase I have some other files in the directory that I dont want included in the readme.
