Today we’re re-releasing Episode 35 with the singularly courageous and inspiring Amy Khoshbin! Amy’s collaboration with Jennifer Khoshbin (her sister!) and Wildcat Ebony Brown is called The Sun Seekers- an ongoing series of performances at LMCC as part of their Take Care series. Are you taking care, my fellow sun seekers, fun seekers? Drink your water. Get sleep. Wash your hands. Read a poem. Listen to a podcast. (hint hint).

Content warning: Death and dying. Some listeners may wish to skip the second half of the podcast from around 1 hour 05 minutes.
