Enjoyed listening

I could (and will) spend several evenings listening to your shows Mark. Your ability to get people to speak their minds is very good. I especially liked the interviews with Bethany Jacobson, Gaylord Oppegard, Wix Covey - these people and many others on your list are people who I've gotten to know very recently. Learning about their lives, activism and their convictions brings them even closer in my life and I made discoveries that without your show I likely would never have discovered. Keep up the good work. Your efforts are appreciated. Please keep it up as I know this must be hard work. Peace, -saw-
