Thank you, schrm! And thanks to TriciaG, Mary in Arkansas, Madelyn Pauline (hertzm), julianpratley, Greg Giordano, Amelia Chesley (plaidsicle), and KevinS. Without all of you, there would be no podcast, If it turned out well, it's because all of you had such interesting things to say!

What a wonderful job, Maria! You're ready for the big time!

I enjoyed everyone's contribution, especially the bloopers for the laughter they brought me. But not everything is laughter. There's sentiment and hopefulness, too. Commitment and sharing and community and far more than that.

Many thanks to you!

P.S. Tell KevinS that I've heard his story from the second grade. It's not really that interesting.

Great job, Maria! For a first time podcast coordinator you sure sounded expert. Your idea to share thoughts of how different narrators are handling the challenge of COVID was spot on. Many thanks to you and all the readers who made this podcast possible!

Take care, stay healthy and be blessed!

My goodness! I'm overwhelmed by so many kind words from so many of you! Thank you for all your support!
I hope the podcast is making a comeback -- We need other folks to take up the baton and run with it!

Oh, thank you all :D
It did me really good to listen to each one of you, to know what you are doing during this stressing pandemic time. It was a kind of a trip, meeting people I know and which voice I would recognize anytime, anywhere. Besides a narrator (in Portuguese) I am also an almost "fanatic" LibriVox listener, wherever I go, any free time I have.
Thank you, Maria, for this great podcast :clap:
