I just wanted to take a minute and tell you what an inspiration you are. I’m be been watching how you are adapting to this upside down world we’re living in since COVID hit. You are super resilient in how you’re adapting and expanding out in the digital world. Bravo! And now the podcast. I love it! Really helping me get through here long weeks when I cannot be with my fiber geek friends, at a show or just spinning at home. They are long days away from my home studio and no more farm to go home to either .😞So thank you for making these days more tolerable.
PS: great radio voice- watch out Terry Gross.
