I just think that Spotlight on the Sound… is just incredible. I love the moderator, he’s so calm and seems to have such a nice relaxed conversational manner that it’s super easy to listen to and learn from without even making the effort. His personality is so… pleasant… I would love to see it at different times of the day so people get to hear this really wonderful little show. I really really appreciate it.

David, thank you for the copy of the Toy Rescue Mission Interview… I think this interview is a terrific learning module to help people understand the value of volunteer work.
