A really helpful podcast. I am not surprised that my fellow Social Workers are at the fore in this. I will be working on the muscle rebuilding which is an area I have neglected--and I know better, just not organized after 5 years of taking care of dogs 3 days a week and now not doing anything on those days. Planning will come in handy too.
