This Week’s Episode:
This episode is the recording of February’s live Q&A. These Q&A sessions take place the second Tuesday of every month. The questions answered in this episode were submitted by listeners of this podcast, both ahead of time and live. I am, once again, joined on this episode by Brendan Mahan.
In this conversation, you will hear several listener questions. This month, a lot of these conversations involved medication. We also talk about employment and recovering from a loss of employment. These Live Q&A’s are a great opportunity for you to get your questions answered. The sessions take place on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 12:30pm. Go to http://erictivers.com/events.
