This Discussion was led by Brandon Sowers and Rachel Helps as part of the 2021 Usona Landa Kongreso. Over 22 minutes of pauses, filler words, and technical difficulties were removed from the presentation to make it easier to listen to. If you’d like to volunteer to help with future video editing of such presentations (since it takes hours of work for just one person to do it alone), send an email to Alex at alexandervaughnmiller @ gmail dot com and let him know you’re interested.
