This episode, we kick off the episode with the words of Amy Poehler:

“You put your hand on your heart and feel it beating and decide if what you wrote feels true. You do it because the doing of it is the thing. The doing is the thing. The talking and worrying and thinking is not the thing. That is what I know.”

Amy Poehler, Yes Please
