Pure Joy

I love this podcast so much! I have listened to every episode many multiple times. I have recommended it to many people and shared it is insights. I have loved listening as the show has evolved and cast a wider net. Foudy was my favorite player on the 1999 team which I watched while packing my apartment with my new husband to move from Illinois where he had finished graduate school to California. Her gift of making the guest comfortable and having an enlightening and informative conversation while their personality shines through is remarkable. I enjoy every minute! If you haven’t listened yet you are missing out! Big Time!!
