Excellent first episode with Dr. Laura Briggs

An insightful and interesting first episode. Dr. Laura Briggs' intelligence and dry wit made for great listening. Looking forward to the next episode!

Sitting in on conversations with smart women.

I love listening to smart women! Ever since the election, I've felt frustrated, and helpless. I'm one of those people who wasn't really paying attention until November. These have been good, constructive conversations. I look forward to more!
