In Case You Missed It

Raw, unedited, from the heart – this is how I would describe the previous and impromptu episode that I recorded and shared for The RK3 Show. Nothing is scripted, no notes, no show intro, no music. No nothing. Just me, my thoughts, and a call to action to each and every one of us to bring forth a better society. Listen and choose HOPE by listening to the previous episode.
