So thankful for this!

I am starting a doctoral program in Clinical Psych in a few months and I am SO thankful to have found this amazing series... I have learned so much from this podcast -- not only about the field, but also about my own interests and my own mind. I love learning about other psychologists' journeys and work. Amy Felman is a great host and her guests are incredible and inspirational. The knowledge I have gained from this series is invaluable!! Thank you, Amy, for igniting a fire inside me!
