She’s great! Hard not to love her stuff

Everyone has something to say. But how many of us are saying what we’re saying with an insatiable need for honesty and for the discovery of the stranger that inhabit everyone of us?
The very concept of this podcast is an intimate search for self through the connections we develop with ourselves and others. Nothing could be more therapeutic to the mind than the enthusiastic exploration of the unknown, the stranger. The courage to do it. The resolution to talk to strangers even when everyone around us is cautioning against it. Ultimately, this podcast insists on inviting all of us to explore the commonalities and love that unite us in lieu of all the impertinent pettiness that erect walls between us. We are all strangers, even within ourselves, let’s embrace it with grace and authenticity.
Thank you, Steph for inviting us into this exploration of ourselves through others.

I’m not sure yet

I haven’t listened to this show yet long enough. But I’m hearing right now this guy talking about the president being on twitter being irresponsible. But I think on the contrary this is the only way for him to speak to the public on accusations and get his side out while the entire force of Hollywood elites and media elites attacking him daily. So it’s revolutionary that we have the ability to literally send a message to our president and he might see it and we know what he feels about what is said about him or about others like Ice, boarder security, etc. when someone burns our flag and accuses 50+% Hispanic boarder security and ice officers Nazis, shouldn’t he be able to let us know that that’s a lie? I mean how do we defend anyone against suppression of their voice and defamations etc.?
