Great Show!! Grateful!!

Hello from the U.S.!! I’m so glad that this podcast exists. It is really helpful to a beginner editor such as myself. You all discuss relevant information and share great tips. Sharing about overcoming burnout and how it’s okay not to love the job 24/7 was relieving for me. Thank you for doing what you do!!
