The future of words

Today I listened to three episodes of The Afterward while I walked. They were so interesting and well done I could have walked another hour. Amy and Holland raise thought provoking questions and the guests provide great insight into topics that make us realize even more the importance of reading and writing. I look forward to each new episode. Keep up the good work.
