Exactly What We Need Right Now

If you've somehow never heard of Jeremy & the folks at Preemptive Love, make sure you remedy that immediately. This podcast is an incredible chance to hear the folks who are on the ground and in the trenches talk about the world-changing work that they're doing.
There are people who TALK about changing the world, and there are people who DO change the world, and Jeremy and the crew at PLC are DOING the work.
The podcast is filled with inspiring stories, tangible ideas, and concrete ways to move from talk to action.
I cannot recommend it highly enough!
