( 12:39 ): Lauryn asks, “What was the recovery like?”
( 17:17 ): Michael says, “I think a lot of people would envy the way that you grew up and some of the experiences you got to have. And I wonder, from your perspective you know seeing both cultures, why come over here? Do you miss that culture more?”
