Thank you

An amazing interview. Thank you! I love the ideas teased out, and the honesty used in exploring chronic illness - both mental and physical. Kate is an inspiration and as someone who has a sibling with a chronic illness she has taught me so much. Keep up the Podcasts - and I loved your book!

Food for the soul

It’s super cringed to say this podcast is food for the soul. But the topics covered are raw and authentic. My grandma died last year and it reminded me how fragile life is. I’m really grateful for the vulnerability of the speakers and for the makers of this podcast🙂

First time reviewer because it’s that good.

I can not recommend Kate Bowlers podcast enough. Finding it during its second week on the air, I was an instant fan and have spread my affection for this podcast far and wide to friends and family. She has voiced during the darkest time of her life messages that give us all hope in the downs of our lives. Bowler’s incredible sense of purpose, in moments when she might not be aware she poses it, is tangible and insightful. She has given me and many of her listeners a gift beyond measure: perspectives on the very things we most believe in—because “everything happens for a reason.”
