||Clean12: Lauren Mosher & Rosie Messer||The moon brings out the best in us, and the worst. Branches reach up to the sky, warning us of what is to come.

Shouldn't we already be doing that?||11/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Journey through the years as a mother persistently passes on troubling body image issues to her daughter. Feel the cool autumn breeze, vanquishing the summer heat. Listen to Life in 10 Minutes.

Good to know the stories will keep coming
So much to think about in each episode. Moments in lives captured in a few words. Novels in a page or two. Highly recommended.
My only suggestion- please have each person say their name before they begin.
