Join in on the conversation!

Meet Mary Shields of Alaska and Kine Leines Skår of Norway. Two female athletes from different generations. Mary is the first woman to complete the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Alaska. She's also an amputee and still runs her dog team. Kine trains dogs for sled teams and is a veterinary technician. Both ladies are advocates for humane animal training. Ask questions! I also will have a co-host for this event--a young Brad Sedillo just getting into podcast hosting.

About me and my podcast

Hello!  I am Catherine Praiswater and I am your host.

I am philosophical but also sentimental.  Growing up, life was spent in the outdoors camping, hiking, backpacking, traveling, fishing and singing songs around the campfire.  Often times my family and I were alone in the wilderness, except for the wildlife.  My parents told both true and imaginative stories which taught us children about life.  As a result, I enjoy telling stories and listening to them. 

My husband and I meet many people all over the world who share with us their positive actions.  Join me in listening to these achievements and perhaps reflect on your own positive imprint.  What's YOUR P.I.?
