The 8th Human - Gudrun Hofmeister of Frederick, Maryland - Philanthropy Consultant

Gudrun and I have been pen pals and friends for 25 years, ever since the 6th grade, when I was living in Mandan, North Dakota, and she was living in Simi Valley, California.

But we have never spoken to each other on the phone or met in person. We've shared so many details of our lives and loves over the years, and for this episode only, the line between host and guest will be blurred.

In this episode, Gudrun and I speak for the very first time "off the page". We read portions of our earliest letters to each other from the early 90s, talk about our experiences with motherhood, and relate on aspects of our personality that we didn't know we shared.
