Unexpectedly Intense

Gates (and the gift of her voice) lend a calming presence to this podcast, but I was generally unprepared for intensity of some of the discussions. Especially Nana Visitor descibes her experience being the victim of an awful crime and Wil Wheaton speaks about a difficult childhood. Light and fluffy content this is not.

Thank you

Thank you Gates and friends for making this. It’s so great to hear you talking with such passion about your lives and careers. The fact you are all such great friends no such a great family is so good to hear.

As we enter our fourth, albeit hopefully a short term, lockdown this podcast has kept me together.

Can’t wait for part two of Wil.
