Season 1 Episode 4

Great episode. The poem was poignant and well written.
I do think it’s sad that none of the host’s friends could come get her when she had her accident. Honestly appalled. With friends like these...
Anyway, I hope she has since gained a new set of friends.

I’m really missing the podcast. The advertising is irritating. When are you coming out with more episodes?
