On the Podcast: 2020 Wrap Up

Today, we talk about 2020. Yes, we voluntarily went back there! Though much was lost this year, and many things felt by turns unfamiliar and maddeningly repetitive, we had a good year. With 3 new members on our team, many new books released, and new contracts signed! Together we clung to the successes and joy.
