“Heart to Heart with Anna” has Babies!

No comments

Okay, that title may be a bit misleading. Anna is certainly not having babies at this point in her life but her podcast has had two brand new podcasts spin off from her program!


Loyal Listeners to Heart to Heart with Anna will recognize the voices of the Hosts of Heart to Heart with Nicole and David. Nicole Vickery and David Franco are both Heart Warriors. Their podcast will empower the adult congenital heart defect community. Nicole is a tetralogy of Fallot Heart Warrior and David is a cc-transposition of the great vessels Heart Warrior. You can listen to Heart to Heart with Nicole and David any time on Spreaker.


The 2nd “baby” to spin off from Heart to Heart with Anna is Heart to Heart with Michael. Many faithful Listeners have heard Michael Liben’s voice. He came on Heart to Heart with Anna when she went around the world in Season 7 when he talked to Anna about healthcare for CHD Heart Warriors in Israel and he’s been on a number of Anna’s LIVE episodes. Michael’s precious daughter, Liel, passed away when she was just a teenager. Michael’s program intends to empower the bereaved community. His first Guest was Nancy Jensen. You can listen to Heart to Heart with Michael any time on Spreaker.

Anna also broadcast a new episode last week! Season 9 started with a bang with Anna’s episode entitled “Stem Cells for an HLHS Heart” featuring Jennifer Gutman talking to Anna about a cutting edge program being conducted at the Mayo Clinic where stem cells are gathered and then used during one of the staged procedures to treat hypoplastic left heart syndrome. You won’t want to miss that program!
