<p>Surprise appearance! The next episode of the Secret Room isn’t due for a week.  But I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce you to a podcast that I love.  It’s called “What Was That Like?” and just like the Secret Room, guests share intimate, personal stories. </p>

<p>I know the host, Scott Johnson, and he has true empathy for his guests, giving them wide berth to tell their stories.  I know a lot you already listen to What Was That Like, but I bet many of you haven’t found it yet.   Scott and I are recommending each others podcasts to our audiences, and it’s about time because it’s a perfect match.  </p>

<p>Hear people share their extreme experiences, first hand, with Scott Johnson on What Was That Like, available on any podcast app or whatwasthatlike.com. </p>

<p>Today I present one of my favorites, “Danny Found a Baby in the Subway.”  Enjoy!</p>
