After last episode's recording fail, there's a lot to discuss! Kate's dipping her toe into TIKTOK, Katherine's reading a LOT of uplifting fiction/non-fiction, plus the hosts talk debut author experiences -- have things changed since their books came out? 

This episode the featured book is brought to you by BFredericksPR and Gregory Ladner.
