Sounds True is the new way

Ram Das, the great Indian gurus and their view of the world were what was needed in the 70s but Tami Simon is the voice of 2020. I have a back injury and spend a lot of time lying down. In the same way that Ram Das said his stroke was grace I give thanks for my injury as it has given me hour upon hour of Tami’s mellifluous voice and super sensitive interviews. Thank you. Sounds True is absolutely fabulous!

Inspiring, Relevant, Real, Thank you Tami.

Down-to-earth and simultaneously spiritual discussions! Tami has a wonderful way to be the voice of listeners - asking questions and reflecting in such a way which brings forth inspiring and relevant INSIGHTS!

More than once I have listened to a podcast I didn't think I would find that interesting/helpful. But as I was driving in the car - I thought "why not listen?" and then be amazed at the "helpfulness" and soul-opening information and/or inspiration I "received". Thank you!

Exceptional podcasts

I feel compelled to write a review as I’ve had quite a few aha moments listening to Tami Simon’s interviews. The topics and speakers are often deeply enlightening, comforting and informing and the reason for that I believe is Tami’s skill as an interviewer. She gets out of the way, asks questions that are informed from a listeners perspective and teases out deep truths and concepts. I’ve listened to other podcast series, sometimes with the same guests but the hosts are not able to check their ego at the door. They get in the way of transferring information, it becomes shallow, woo woo, hallelujah. Tami does such a great service to the listeners. Even if the guests, books or topics are ambiguous, contrary or challenging, Tami reaches through that and knows what to get out of her guests to ensure it stays enlightening. That is a rare skill and I think it demonstrates a true compassion and commitment to stewardship. I listened to two episodes yesterday that were very different - Mark Wolynn on Generational Trauma (what a nugget) and Cynthia Bourgeault, which was on a different plane and one I couldn’t quite grasp. But through Tami’s questions to Cynthia, I found some wisdom on presence and attachments in relationships. I’m picking up on the tone of the hmm mm from Tami if there’s a holy grail of a question coming. In Mark’s interview, I think Tami understood she just needed to point him and click. I’m enjoying the podcasts tremendously, I’m working my way through the whole series. Congratulations and thank you. Bianca from Australia
