One to relisten.

Avery’s cadence, delivery, thoughtfulness, and perspective keep me coming back to each episode to listen again and again. I’m a professional seamstress and there’s nothing more thought provoking yet comforting to listen to while working. Thank you to Avery for making such amazing content!
