  • Thanks for sharing this! Turning the captions on is a passive, non-invasive, effective approach! I’m glad you liked the podcast too. It was a pretty terrible Doofenshmirtz impression at the beginning but I’m glad you got past it to enjoy the message 🙂

    Thanks for sharing! Keep up all the great work you are doing! You’re helping make a difference!
