We welcome back to the show the amazing Melissa Etheridge who wrote the song “Pulse”. The very same song we used on the show to honor the victims that died in what is now the biggest mass-shooting in American history when a gunman entered & killed 49 people at Club Pulse in Orlando, Florida.  All proceeds from the song go to Equality Florida. She updates the cast on her current tour, we talk about her Cannabis activism, and she even sings us a line of a lullaby she would sing to her children when they were younger.
