Thank you for checking out my podcasts! They cover the same topics as my writing and everything comes from a Christian perspective. Check out my site for more information at www.CynthiaBaileyRug.com

Also, I hope to add more podcasts fairly often, but due to my own mental health struggles, they may not be added terribly often. I will do my best though.

Transcripts of all podcasts are available on my website at cynthiabaileyrug.com/podcast-and-youtube-notes/

If you notice me mentioning my video in some podcasts, it's because the audio was taken from old YouTube videos.
