Sharyl, typos: Change NEW to NEWS in the title. Delete one comma after WIKIPEDIA. Feel free to remove my comment when you're done. Thanks for your valuable reporting.

You bring up the point about social media censoring certain posts. I've shared your podcast on facebook and gotten *very* little to no response, which is not normal for my posts. Definitely unusual behavior. And very frustrating!
Thanks Sharyl, I absolutely love the work you do. We need many more people like you!
