Due to tech gremlins, this podcast episode was recorded twice. Once outside while Nita was walking in the ravine near her neighborhood and Jennifer was walking around her house due to extreme levels of tree pollen. The second recording was done inside on our computers and is the released episode. Needless to say we did not let tech gremlins stop us. When there is a message and mission as powerful as this one, we will do whatever it takes to make sure it is available for the everyone to hear far and wide. A big THANK YOU to Nita for her flexibility and willingness to give recording this podcast episode one more try.
