Episode V: Mark Petersen

Happy father’s day to you and yours out there!

This was not the episode I wanted to post today. I have another one that was intended for today that I wasn’t able to have edited in time, but regardless, it IS new content.

Today, we have Mark Petersen (my father-in-law for full disclosure), and his insights on what happens when an adoption doesn’t work, what it was like growing up in WI, raising a daughter, and now as a grandfather. He’s reached the mountaintop that so many of us are aiming for.

In the meantime, I hope to have the intended episode up by next weekend. Thanks for tuning in!
