  • 21. The Final Wrap & Review of HSC

    It's done. Season 4 is completed. A wrap up with the lovely Karina Bourne covering all 4 Seasons of our 1st venture into podcasting. A huge thank you to all of the wonderful guests who gave up their time, their experiences, their stories and their wisdom to help you the listeners. The safety community is somewhat uniquie in most love to share their stories and this made the pod both interesting and easy to create. A big thanks to you, all of you who have downloaded and listened, gave support, suggestions and feedback to us. Your help was never taken for granted and will not be forgotten. Finally a huge thank you to Karina who supported and encouraged this endeavour (and all of my strange ideas). Without her none of what has been aired would have. She is my rock and my muse.
