I can’t think of a better way to start the new year than by wishing a very Happy Birthday to one of my dearest friends. Katynka Martinez is my conscious and my partner in podcasting/radio crime. I can’t imagine my life without her in it and I’m so glad that she was born on this day. Happy Birthday Katynka!

Peace,

Rio
