Lauren Kress ,

Wow. This is life changing.

Listening to just one episode of this podcast not only changed my day, it changed my life.

Wonderful and tragic this is a courageous show that I believe is a poignant catalyst for a higher state of consciousness and significantly deeper consideration of the choices we make and the actions we take.

Have your tissues close to hand.
