I imagine I’m not the only one feeling that the state of the world right now, especially considering the physical isolation, has been mentally isolating as well. Podcasts help keep me connected to the community and give me a sense of calm among this storm of news that batters my mind like sheet-rain on the window pane.
Thank goodness for folks that still have the creativity, ability, and capacity to continue making and delivering art to our feeds throughout.
