Say Hi Thank you so much for your podcasts. As a man disabled with mostly pain, during covid you enlighten and lighten my life. Podcasts are the great equalizer in a world that still looks down with suspicion at the poor while the powerful remain unquestioned. I often wonder what lore will survive from our time on earth. And whom will tell the tales. Again thanks and Hi.
