Hi! I love this podcast and would listen to it every week. The only problem is...well THERE HASNT BEEN A NEW EPISODE SINCE FEBRUARY last time I checked that was hmmm let me see🤔 4 MONTHS ago! that’s pretty long last time I checked.🙁 otherwise it’s really good and cool to know what is going on in the world cause I hardly ever leave the house. Good news is I’ve had one in real life play date and two visits to Walmart and piano lessons are in person too- Miriam Marshall age 12
