    Hi again Mary, Riley was an incredible guest today with so much information to share and I love the much-needed links you have posted!
    This is also a boisterous “shout-out” to Ron – he has a very smooth voice for radio and a fantastic ability for initiating and steering the conversation. He adds his insight to each topic which is also valuable to the content. I understand the editing is a lot of work but it appears seamless to the listener. Great job Ron & thanks! 🙂
