Now that your clocks have fallen back for Daylight Savings (and if you have kids, they were up extra early – yay!), let’s dive into the show notes for Episode #23 of kokokara Has A Podcast. This week’s episode is coming at you from a hotel room in Baltimore, and we answer three callers seeking home-related updates (from how things are holding up years later to whether it was a shock to move from a smaller ranch-style home to a larger two-story one). Sherry also celebrates *almost* predicting a 2017 color of the year, John gets emotional over another podcast, and we share why it’s especially nerve-wracking to do DIY on camera. Oh, and in honor of Election Day, our quiz takes a surprisingly political turn.
You can download this episode from iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and TuneIn Radio – or listen to it below! Then use this page to check out any links, notes, or photos that we referenced.
