This is the best podcast EVER

This needs to be a Netflix talk show yesterday. I learn a ton, laugh constantly and am always inspired. Part informational, part therapy with plenty of comedy. Love JVN! What a treasure, a beacon of light in this dark universe.

Unmissable - truly smart & entertaining

I cannot recommend this podcast enough! Beyond the fabulousness of Jonathan character - every subject is well researched in advance and the choice of experts is always on point. Very refreshing and just cannot believe how I did before listening to it.
