I am bubbling with excitement! I can't wait for this season to begin!

Debbie, I have a listener request. In some of your shows you would ask your guests a series of questions at the end of the interview and if you should happen to bring this back could you throw this one in: If someone wrote a book about your life, what would it be titled?

Good luck!

My two favorite podcasts, my absolute true addiction for every road trip I take, are Design Matters and Radio Lab. And this lineup has me SO excited, I can hardly express it in words. As a student, these interviews are so incredibly valuable- it's an eye opening hour into the real world, for sure. I absolutely cannot wait!
