A Delight

My most memorable guest appearance on a podcast this year was Sonia Nolan’s My Warm Table. Sonia has a wonderful warm way of diving into a conversation. She asks unusual questions exploring people’s backgrounds, influences and food. The result is a different conversation than what is typical. I had a heap of fun on the podcast and it’s become a regular on my listening list.

This podcast makes you feel like you belong. Sonia creates a real sense of community covering a broad range of interesting topics and celebrating the power of kindness and the potential to make positive impact on our world.
A blessing for listeners.
