I listened to the show the other day and enjoyed the interview with Kari Chapin. I hope you get a chace to interview Debbie Stoller one day as I think it would be a very interesting conversation.

Kimberly I'm a big fan, but I'm begging you as a listener, please please don't type during interviews! I know how hard it is to stop multitasking from personal experience, and I make this request as a devoted listener. Thanks for considering it.
