  1. I appreciate the resources you visibly leave at the end of every episode. Most podcasts, if any at all, do not have the same level of integrity and respect you have for your listeners and the organizations that they can go to. Thank you.

    Now a corridor of high school students stomping and hollering.
    Great show. Again.

    1. Thanks Jess. I figure if I’m going to claim we’re all a sum of the stories we’re told, it makes sense to be transparent about the stories that are influencing me. I’m glad to hear someone takes the times to check out some of the links!
