First and foremost, I’d like to thank you for supporting this endeavor by navigating to this corner of the internet. It is important to establish an archive for the public to access, and taking part in this experience significantly adds to its accessibility. To listeners all across the world, we need now more than ever come together in solidarity to share our knowledge with others, I truly believe that it is important because numbers create change. A change where people who’s voices are not heard can be acknowledged. This podcast is a project that creates a platform for individuals to exchange information and create connections outside of it, as well. We learn from each other, once again I would like to thank you for listening.
