  1. Sorry folks and to Min Sook Lee that I couldn’t get Min Sook’s voice on the air. I worked out the technical challenge after the show ended. Thanks Kyle (Kids’ Time) for your help. Listeners, I appreciate your patience and hope you tune into the next show on Child Birth Choices.
    Please come to the film screening on November 7th at 1 pm in Guelph to meet Min Sook and her panel of guests in person.
