Done! Just in the nick of time for 2019. Honestly, the first story alone is worth it- women in the navy the government is turning into mermaids (how their feminine features are preserved, what they want for themselves, where their loyalties lie- it‘s amazing!) Lots of great stories about mothers and daughters, female Captains, glimpses into the future of dating, family stories. It‘s all great. Give it a listen.
