Bourbon benefit ,

Great stories!

The focus on people “doing good” in the world offers complex issues , examined here in an engaging and thoughtful manner by two earnest storytellers. Their conversations make me want to sit on a comfy couch with a Kentucky bourbon and listen, listen, and listen. Waiting for more!
