I saw you on TikTok and am happy to see you on the podcast world. I appreciate having a male in the therapy world speaking out and providing emotional education is much needed in the world. As weird as it is, if you could listen to The My Favorite Murder podcast on The Exactly Right network. Georgia and Karen started the podcast and they BLEW up! Throughout the episodes they share the ups and downs about starting/setting up podcasting details, as well as their murder stories. So you know, I’m tuning in. Thanks for being here.
