Judge Thorne

The episode with Judge William Thorne is fantastic! The recruitment strategies shared should be applied at states and counties across the nation. This podcast was really inspiring to me as a child welfare social worker

Episode 1 Should Be Required Listening

I was so impressed with this podcast’s first guest. Pastor has a command of persuasive facts to offer a straightforward and compelling perspective for considering the best conditions of everyone to be in our community’s best interest. I definitely plan to listen again.
