About the hosts

So Many Wings was founded by Jacks McNamara and Sascha Altman DuBrul.  Sascha is currently on leave from So Many Wings while he is involved in some accountability processes related to past incidents of harm. When those are addressed more fully, he will be returning to So Many Wings and we will offer an episode with more details.
