Outtakes with Randy Stearns
Hosted by Erica Jolene with special guest Randy Stearns | Transcription HERE
This is a special Afterthoughts Outtakes episode with Randy Stearns (husband to Erica, host, and father to Margot and Caratacus) hits the highlights of topics not included in the previous week's episode.
For time’s sake, there were some really great clips that just didn’t make the cut in last week’s episode. Packaged up nicely into this episode, Randy and Erica reminisce about how they met and how silly they were to think that everything was going to be so easy. Randy shares more about his childhood, his career in veterinary medicine, and how these things intertwine in unexpected ways. They talk about the surprise blessing that came from sharing their home with so many professionals who were once strangers but soon came to feel like family. Randy reveals his reluctance to join the social media support groups that Erica found comfort in. Instead, he provides insight into what support looks like for him amongst his friends and the friendships they formed at the start of their journey.
