011 Humpty Dumpty

Everything kind of feels like humpty dumpty right now, just trying to put the impossible pieces back together again, sort of like my most recent recording that I’m still attempting to glue it back together. In this host episode I discuss the roller coaster that was May, which was also mental heath awareness month and how I used it to explore resources. Some exciting things and some stressful things going on recently. I also try opening up conversation about the tragic discovery of 215 indigenous children’s bodies at a residential school in BC.
