My sister Lea Thau’s Kickstarter campaign for the second season of her radio show “Strangers” met the fundraising deadline with flying colors, so that’s really great news.

The show’s new format is longer, and the stories have time to evolve and go a little deeper in this timeframe. If you have a half hour to spare, I strongly recommend this story from Bill Ratner, who overcame incredibly difficult odds to have a happy and fulfilling life today. The story is beautifully told and edited.

Even though the next season of the show is now funded, Lea can still use your support, through subscribing to and rating the Podcast on iTunes, liking the FaceBook page, leaving comments on the show’s website and elsewhere on the web, and telling your friends about the show.
