I just finished the podcast also. My ask is what, if anything, can your community do to help in some way? You have 50,000 subscribers and the others you interviewed have a few friends out here too. There must be some power we hold if we can act together. 🤔

Hi Ron. We are all coming together to support one another and make as much noise about this as possible. That's been one silver lining in this whole thing - connecting with other awesome creators.
