E116: Postcards and Music Connect People Featuring Teresa Edmunds

I was thinking about how you say postcards connect people. So does music.

    thank you both for this episode! I really like the idea. Music is a huge part of my life too and your talk gives me a lot inspiration! My next postcards will be music-themed and dedicated to important songs in my life. Thanks again, from Germany – Melina

      Thank you, Melina. I love to listen to all kinds of music, and this show made me think about it even more. I’ll have to think about what song I put on a card today!
