    • Purchasing products from affiliate links. Generally within the notes for each podcast episode I’ll have relevant books, or other items, mentioned. Clicking on a link brings you to Amazon.com and if you directly purchase an item from that link, they’ll send me a small fee. It’s a nominal amount but if several of you do it then I can support my habits.
