    I just discovered your podcast this month and I’m binge listening. I laughed out loud when I heard you mention needing to use a different name because an adult entertainer works under that name. For years I thought I was the only one with this name until I discovered the truth when I released my first book on Amazon. Now I tell everyone to include my middle name to keep them safe! I thought I was the only one.
