In which @abbyMnorman & I send off 2016… (Part I) — #KatieSpeakShow Ep68 12/24/2016

In brief: This was the first time I’d had the opportunity to chat beyond Twitter and email exchanges with Abby Norman who, it turns out, is as delightful “in person” as she is online. We talked about everything from the medical odyssey she’s writing about for Nation Books to recovering from the election to all manner of tangents during which we repeatedly give 2016 the GFY send off it deserves!

We talked for so long, this is part I of II with Abby as my solo featured guest. You’re guaranteed to enjoy her as much as I did, so you are welcome!

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at Thank you!
