Louder Now Episode #121 ****
Hello friends, welcome back to the podcast. This was the first time I have talked with Doctors on this show and it was wonderful. We talk personal stories of overcoming trauma and we get into forgiveness, faith and even some talk about psychedelics. Also, much more .
I loved having them on the podcast and hope to do part 2 in the future.
