What a great podcast! You’re very good at this. I love the variety of participants and the way you strung it all together. I even liked what I had to say (I am usually my own worst critic)....

My heart melted when the young ladies came out of the room smiling, gave me a hug and said thank you. It was a meaningful experience for them. Thanks a million to Kitty for her openness and skill in doing this activity with our young people.

I played the podcast for my students this morning and they were as pleased as I was. Who am I kidding?! Ecstatic beyond words! We are so thrilled to be a part of this episode and this magnificent podcast. Thank you so much for the great experience!
