Don’t forget our literary podcast!

A friend asked me the other day if we’d done more podcast episodes!  She hadn’t listened  since the 2nd one.  “We’re on our seventh!” I said.  Exclaimed, really.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should.  Each episode is just about 15 minutes and the stories all revolve around a theme. We’ve heard stories about parents, childhood, food, home, and aging. And our newest episode, just in time for the Christmas and New Years holidays (lots of humor and lots of bleeping).
