Podcast production note:
Adrienne liked her mic so much she turnt, turnt, turnt it up! A compressor was ran over the entire recording. It shouldn’t be loud in your ear holes, but you will hear some distortion at times. Clipping is not our friend. Our apologies for the sound inconvenience and we hope it doesn’t spoil your listening to our stimulating and engaging conversation about this book. We rocked it.
