  1. Really cool... Hey I wish our interview would have been for this podcast.

  2. You said that MY email was going to be in this...:( Why isn't it?

  3. Sorry about that Iona! That was our mistake! Katie and Hannah, we're so sorry we couldn't figure out a time to talk. We will definitely have to plan better for the next episode!

    Have a great week!
