If you love snail mail…

…you will love this podcast. I stumbled across this podcast a few years back and have enjoyed every episode. Frank has some fascinating guests, and he is fascinating himself. I’ve been sending more
postcards thanks to this podcast, and now my friends are sending more postcards, too! Postcards really do connect people. And this podcast inspires them.
