This podcast has changed my life

I’ve listened to this podcast from early 20s until my late 30s and I can honestly say that it has changed my life. It has shaped the way I think across all areas of my life and has genuinely made me a more interesting and thoughtful person.

Left BIAS

This show has a strong left leaning bias. The hosts seem to be oblivious of this fact.
