4 years of podcasting, and it’s time to say a fond farewell. :)
the podcast and everything it has allowed me to experience and everyone it has allowed me to meet. i wouldn’t change it for the world. :)
Please check back here periodically. I hope to start a blog up, so i can still share experiences and what i am doing. it just won’t be me sitting down behind a microphone to do it. I’m also on twitter as itsjustmeghan. please follow me on there if you want to see what shenanigans i am up to!
