I am going to Israel to visit this amazing woman.

I met Edie Berg almost a year ago at Podcast Movement 15 and we established what I would call a cozy female relationship.  This year when we both went to Podcast Movement 16 the friendship grew and became cemented in a bond where all Edie Berg basically had to say is “Come to Israel” and we said yes.  We are going to Israel and I couldn’t be more excited.  In this episode we giggle, we have background noise in the hotel, we have visitors, we have people at the vending machine, and elevator dings.  Go past that and you will hear two women who love each other talking everything from religions in Israel, to networking, to giggling to facts about Edie Berg, my friend.
