Moving our bloodline forward. And a metaphor for inheritance. These themes converge in this season's episode.

I wanted to like this
I love anything related to the moon and I really gave this a shot but it feels like I'm listening to a mother reading her child a story. I wish she'd just speak from the heart and not read from a script.
Melodic with subtle humor
Lunar Datebook is soothing to the ears and the soul- Jennifer’s voice lulls you in to a moment of reflection, almost as thought the podcasts are an alternative way to meditate. The poems at the end signal an end to the reverie but a reminder to look up… and inward… throughout the day. Kudos to Ms. Ellsworth for creating something so subtle and yet so powerful.
