Coburt ,

Always a thought provoking experience.

I really look forward to each new episode such a good listen and it respects your time by being short and well edited. Thanks

Charlie_Charlie_Charlie ,

A favourite!

This is my favourite podcast for stretching my legs and getting a good walk around the block when I've been cramped inside with my own thoughts for too long. It feels like walking alongside someone else – though you have no idea who it will be each week – and it's so often warm and hopeful and thoughtful and leaves me seeing the same old neighbourhood a little differently each time.
