Wonderful peek into the local community...

Sarah is a brilliant interviewer who connects with her guests on a deeply human level. The guests are diverse, interesting, engaging, and just really wonderful to get to know. This podcast is such a wonderful way to tap into the local Ventura County community’s healers, activists, creators, and dreamers, and get connected to their work, their change making, and their stories.
Thank you Sarah and The Pharm for this gift to the local community!
