So Says Ced ,

She speaks and I listen

Props to Jen for not sitting on the sidelines but actually doing something constructive to try to move the conversation forward. Really appreciate her bravery vulnerability authenticity. Here is someone taking what time she's learned from embodying "doing your work" and living in community with others.

Audio Quality

Love this podcast... content is fantastic and topics so relevant. I wish the audio quality was better. I want to listen to every episode, but have trouble hearing the voices of the people being interviewed on the other end of the phone.
