    I very much enjoyed this radio program. It was fun to listen to the interaction between the three of you. You were interviewing my beautiful daughter Dr. Ashley Earp. She is knowledgeable and well spoken and it was good to hear her voice from so far away. She loves her work in Alaska, and loves her patients there. Thank you for having her on your program.
