EPISODE 10 🌺 Anniversary Yuntaku

Assamiyo~ Can you believe it’s been a year?  A huge ippee nifee deebiru (thank you very much) to the dedicated podcast listeners this past year and to those who are just joining this evolving identity and discovery journey. You are an integral part of why this podcast has been able to gain the momentum it has and are what keeps it going. In this anniversary episode, we’ll yutaku (chat) with the co-founders behind the podcast Mariko, Erica, & Tori – where they explore individual and collective highlights from the past year, projects that are in the works, and what they are hopeful for in the future. Gratitude to our amazing editing team for their work this past year: Joey & Emma and a warm welcome to our new volunteers: Adriane, Kiera, Carol, Isabella, and Harumi! Looking forward to another wonderful year – Yutashiku unigeesabira!
