NIU Support Chillcast

Despite the fact that Anji Bee and I have both been podcasting for nearly three years, it has been just recently that we realized how much we have in common and begun a friendship. Still, I have always had great respect for her work and am really honored to be a part of her most recent Collabocast.

After receiving a letter from a Northern Illinois University student who was comforted by her show during the terrible time of the recent shooting, she pulled together 16 music podcasters to produce this show in support of a listener.

I strongly believe that the most valuable gifts we can give to one another have little to do with the material. This podcast is a fine example of the type of soul hug so many of us are in need of.

Give it a listen.
