Things Worth Considering

I really enjoyed being interviewed on the show “Things Worth Considering”. Hosts Gord Riddell and Alexia Gerogousis are both members of the Transformational Arts College and that afforded our conversation a particularly resonant depth. I hope you’ll consider giving it a listen!
