Au Revoir

Andy, I miss you already. Many thanks for providing so much information on Covid during such an uncertain time in our lives. Kudos to involved in this podcast

cminmn ,

Thank you!!

I had to listen to these farewell episodes alone because I was afraid I’d cry. Your podcast was a huge source of comfort and information at a bleak time. You managed to be positive and optimistic while also honest. I learned a lot and always finished episodes feeling energized. Thank you thank you Andy and company for this service you provided. I will miss your voice, but understand why you’re signing off now. Much love and appreciation from this Minnesota physician

Eves in Texas ,

Goodbye and thank you!

You were the calm in the chaos. You were the light in the darkness. You were the hope in the dimness.
Thank you for your time, effort, strength, dedication to truth, and love.
Sincerely,
Eva Almendarez
