Emma(now 11 years old!)
Just listened to several episodes of Open Wide. Emma is hilarious and talks about a variety of topics of interest to both kids and adults. Such a well put together and fun podcast. Kept me chuckling the whole time. Highly recommended!
I just finished listening to your episode on dental
school. I never knew there was SO much reading involved! I’m glad you like reading or it would be a nightmare!
Looking forward to your next episode.
