  1. Loved this episode as a keen Family Historian and ongoing declutterer – so many things to think about and action

    1. Thank you Cali! It was such an honour to speak to Matt about this important topic. Can I suggest you also listen to episode 189 with Hazel Thornton? That one will be right up your street as well.
