Episode 38. Winston Simmonds tells us how he started Sand Dune Publishing and why he created the Between Me And You journal series. We also talk about the importance of asking people we care about for their stories, and sharing our own with them.
“We’ve never talked about some of their feelings, some of their dreams, some of their hopes when they were in their twenties or thirties or forties. Or what they think about the relationship that we all share together, questions that sometimes we’ve been meaning to ask but never get around to.”
