Motivational and very well done

Been listening for a few weeks and went back in history and found many episodes that I have found excelant. A lot of her guests have very interesting ways of explaining their specialties that make them stick and easy to remember.

Keri’s podcast

Keri is a wonderful conversationalist, who is genuinely interested in her interviewees and invested in highlighting the power that lies in speaking truth and perspective and also in the relatability of a story. Keri, keep speaking life, you are a candle :)

I love Keri's style of interviewing, super straight, no affect, just walking her talk and showing how ordinary people do amazing things. It's women like Keri that are showing humans how they can be amazing as themselves and stop chasing others approval out there. <3
