August Favorites: Obama Ave & ‘Little Women’ Trailer

I think August was by far the hardest month of 2019. While the month may be over, the fight against gun violence is far from.

And now, a look at the light-hearted pop-culture and entertainment items that kept me going during August 2019.

(P.S. The Monthly Favorites podcast will be on hiatus until at least January 2020 while I revamp it!)
