  1. I enjoy the new format. I listen to your show in the morning as I get ready for work and I don’t usually have a whole hour to listen to the show, so the shorter format is appreciated.

    • Thanks for letting me know, Emma! I was hoping that 30 minutes would be better for listeners. Thanks for listening, and let me know if I can help any time!
