I’ve been listening to some great podcasts lately, so I thought I’d share a couple!
1. That Sounds Fun With Annie F. Downs: Check out episode #23 with Michael Wear. It’s a fantastic interview and the most positive take on politics I’ve heard in maybe two years. Seriously so good.

It doesn’t make interesting entertainment for me. This show, though. SLOW. CLAP. Continue reading
