Attention all parents with school-age children! See if there is a Chesterton Academy near you!
Our transition song halfway through this episode (“Since You Been Gone”) was written by Heather & Marty (more great artists from Dan’s hometown of Effingham, Illinois). Check out their website by clicking here. Please check out their new album on iTunes. You can even invite them to play during the cocktail hour at your wedding or other social event!
