Chelsea Whitby says
First, let me say that I love your podcasts. I am really interested in this topic of creating a great play space for young kids but this show doesn’t seem to be available. Is there a way to listen to this or will it be made available at some point? Or are there any other podcasts that cover this topic.
So glad you let me know. Thanks. You can hear it now. Mel
