Bear with me
Working on better intros. That’s a lot harder than I thought. And I didn’t give any background on Carl. That needs to be added sometime. It’s hard to be yourself w a mic in your face. Sound is poor too but that’s getting better as we go. Thanks for the feedback.
Really enjoyed listening to Carl describe his journey. Good back and forth. Would like to have heard more about how his family was adjusting to his limited abilities. How does he keep his mind sharp? Great show looking forward to next one.
