Jennaoc ,

Highly recommended!

As someone who works in the purpose space, I’m always on the hunt for good podcasts that share real stories of purpose in action. Loving this podcast for doing just that! Highly recommend it.

Jenna DB ,

Yes this! Great topics!

Such a fantastic line up of guests, excellent interview skills and truly inspiring topics.

RachelMasonNunn ,

Fantastic, Inspiring, Thought-Provoking

I have just discovered your podcast and I'm so glad I did! Your guests are so articulate and impressive, and the relaxed conversation style is a pleasure to listen to. I run a podcast also, Good Will Hunters, so appreciate the difficulty of creating something like this! It is clear the level of effort that goes in and it is so worthwhile - Humans of Purpose is a fantastic resource for the sector! I can't wait to continue listening.
