Finely Aged Cheese (Rewind Episode): ABC Soaps with Melanie Hood-Wilson

This rewind episode was originally aired in February of 2023! Our guest is Melanie Hood-Wilson of Melanie Hood-Wilson and Associates (guest on our October 2023 Wham! episode), who offers consulting and workshops on education, DEI, and program and curriculum design, among other educational services. She is also Leslie's best friend, and has known Lynne and Leslie since the 8th grade.

We talk about loving soap operas, particularly All My Children, One Life To Live, and General Hospital, especially in the days we ran home from school to catch them.
