Libby is the happiest person on Earth. It is no accident that I asked her to be on the podcast because we all could use a little joyful Libby in our life right now.

It only took more than a year to convince her, but I finally interviewed my own wife! She is the best middle school theatre teacher in the world and she was one of the best high school theatre teachers ever as well! (She now owes me $20.)

I thought that it just makes sense to interview the director from my last two interviews, Mrs. Terry Ismert. I apologize for my microphone. I am a lighting guy.
