Do you feel safe?

We know it’s been pretty much the craziest year, so for the first episode of Season 4, we want to hear from you about how you’re feeling. And since the show is all about the ins, outs, and what-have-yous of what keeps us safe, what we really want to know is: Do you feel safe? Why? Or why not? Maybe, right now, you’re worried about coronavirus. Or climate change. Or maybe you’re wondering whatever happened to that North Korean nuclear weapon and… all the possible fire the fury. Tell us your story. Record us a message using the voice app on your phone, and send it over to boom@inkstickmedia.com by this Saturday October 16. That’s boom@inkstickmedia.com. Let us listen for a change.
