Thought Provoking

I have yet to listen to some of the episodes, but still I am very much in love with it. It does not sugarcoat, it does not beat around the bush, what it does is help me change perspective and forces me to have conversations with myself. Conversations that are often uncomfortable and all the more necessary!
Thank you so much to you Layla and all of your amazing guests!
