Thank you for your amazing podcast

I want to thank you for your unique podcast!
I’m a nursing professor so I’m science oriented. During this pandemic the news was so difficult to sort through with some over reacting and others providing misinformation. I listened to yours everyday! You are smart, caring, creative and knowledgeable - all of which helped over this past year!

It is incredibly comforting that I am not the only one having different feelings from everyone else.
