Episode 9: Resources

On episode nine of borrowed solace: the podcast, the other editors and I discussed how the journal has morphed into what it is today, and all the growing pains that came along with the may changes that have taken place over the last few years.

Unlike our usual resources posts, we don’t have much in the way of information and external links to share, but we would still love to hear from you! Imagine we’re all sorting through Halloween candy, and remarking on how crazy it is that it’s already November, when the conversation turns to this week’s podcast. Let us know what you think and comment below!
