    I am so glad to have found Shrinkrapradio. I really like your podcasts and especially enjoyed ‘The Psychology of Doing Good.’

    I started volunteering for the first time this year and it has been such a joy. So much so, that I am now moving towards a career in social service. Personally, I cannot think of a better career than of one where people can help others.

    Blessings from the beautiful state of Georgia…
