City of Dogs is now a podcast

A few weeks ago, I launched the City of Dogs podcast, talking with people and dogs from my City of Dogs book about their neighborhoods and how they are coping in the midst of this extended pandemic.  We also have some special guests along the way, including dog park experts talking about community and compassion fatigue experts advising us on dealing with stress.  You can listen here or on Spotify , ApplePodcasts and IHeart Radio .
