A Living Example of the Power of Love
This podcast gives me hope that I too can find real love someday. Janet and Aaron are a couple living openly, showing us what it really means to say, "I love YOU." The you being the complete person, beyond the surface. They laugh and tackle the world together, bicker and tease, but at the end of the day, despite Janet's transgender past, they're a couple, who loves like any other couple. And that's what I applaud.
