Excellent content, strange editing choices.

I really enjoyed the guru playbook episode. The episode about unconscious bias was sped up, perhaps to fit the content into a time slot. Whilst the content was great, the listening experience was less than pleasant.

I’m obsessed with this

I love this podcast so much.
So easy to listen to, yet I can listen again and again and I feel better prepared for face life each time. So many helpful tips. Keep it up.

All in the mind review

This podcast is fantastic. Each episode has been worthwhile: so stimulating, well researched and /or great guests. Sanar and producer doing a great job. Last ep, which considered uncertainty facing death had me in tears but well worth the sadness for great insights into everyday concerns.
