Recorded in front of a live audience at Sonic-Con 2020, this episode is a first in many ways. Our first live show, our first time at Sonic-Con, and the first time for Michael Schroeder to guest host the show with JD. In the episode we share a gigantic newscast with all the latest happenings in the space and then we welcome Executive Director of RiverCross, Cindy Finley, to the show to talk about their work of using audio drama as a ministry tool for broken and abused children in the African continent. We talk about the miniseries Holding Esther, share some clips of their newest project, Jabota Bridge, and Cindy explains how you can get your copy of the program. Then we cap off the episode with some feedback from Ian, Emily, Malachi, and live feedback from the audience.
