Toby Lightman Pt 1

EToday is the first of three episodes in a row featuring Women Road Warriors in honor ofInternational Women’s Monthon Tales of the Road Warriors.My guest isToby Lightman. In our brief talk we touched on another problem men never experience, the struggle to have a child. Though a man can share some of the emotional weight of this struggle, we can never know the physical and internal anguish that a woman experiences. Toby recently captured this in her song ‘Begin Again”. I had no idea what the song was about going into this conversation, so you’ll hear me getting woke in real time. Go To Show Notes Page
