A hidden treasure!

You’re back! 👏🏼 Amy and David, thank you for the playful, curious spirit you bring to your discussions and interviews. I discovered Season 1 after it was over and have been waiting, watching, and hoping for Season 2. This podcast fills a real void for me and I am so grateful to get a bit of St. Matthews delivered in this venue. I don’t think many people know about this little gem. Maybe we can find a way to spread the word more broadly. Best to you both, and thank you!
