Down to earth & inspiring!

Love Matt’s cheery chats and thoughtful questions. Really feel like we get to know each guest in a down to earth real conversation. It’s like having a coffee with friends. Always uplifting.

Real and Remarkable

When the rest of the world seems to have a fake news element to it, these chats are refreshing, real and just like Matt says, remarkable. It’s been really great to hear the stories of people we know (and don’t) through the showcasing podcast lens and storytelling capture of true humanity. What a perfectly imperfect world we live in, this podcast is how I’d like to think people should be more magnified with, without shame or judgment - just listening, learning and reflecting. Perfect magnifying Matt - thanks to you and your guests for earpops of inspiration in my life!
