    Chatting with the author of the book Committed, Dr. Adam Stern.  Committed comes out July 13, 2021.  Look for it at your local bookstores.  There are no spoilers in this episode but it's always a great idea to read the book and then listen to the author's perspective.  I've found that helps me.

KingGooser ,

Engaging host! Buy that woman a coffee!

I’ve only listened to a few so far but all three were great! She’s engaging and takes an otherwise boring guest and makes them interesting. Give it a whirl, I am :)
