    Hi Nate,
    A quick note to offer thanks and encouragement. I love podcasts and yours has risen to the top off my list. I love sharing your stories with my two kids (girl 13 and boy 12) while in the car. They immediately unplug from their devices at the start, listen intently during and have discussions at the end of each podcast. That brings more joy to me then you can imagine. I hope you continue for many years to come.

    How about an unsolicited and possibly unwanted story idea?!?…

    The ice industry on the late 19th – early 20 century was very important in the development of the country. It allowed for urbanization and expansion of cities. It’s scale was massive and now almost forgotten. I would love to hear a story bringing to life a small part of that industry.

    With great affection
