Today's episode is a tough one. Over the weekend, someone very special to me died suddenly and tragically in a hit and run accident. His name was Mat George. He was the co-host of She Rates Dogs: The Podcast, which I executive produce. He was also a friend and one of the most special, talented, hilarious and kind human beings I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with and producing. Today I share a little about him and about how I am processing the loss and shock. I go through the interesting effect that tragedy can have on your perspective and how it is profoundly altering mine. Ultimately, this episode is about paying tribute to a person who was universally loved and who I adored. It's profoundly rare to meet someone as pure of heart as him ever...Let alone in entertainment. I feel blessed to have known him and his light will be deeply missed. Love you, Mat.
