Episode 26. End of Season Review, with Erica. The Hope-Makers

So in this shorter than usual episode I reflect on what hosting The Hope-Makers has given me, and the lessons I've learned. It has been a hugely enriching experience and I have been humbled time and time again by the extraordinary ordinary people I have interviewed.I will be taking some time to consider how best to proceed with season 2, and if you would like to share ideas and thoughts of what you would like, even if it is 'more of the same please' then please let me know your thoughts by emailing
