A demanding, generous teacher

This was so helpful perhaps because it is so demanding. For the full benefit I listened to it, maybe a year or two ago and came back to listen a second time. Everything made so much more sense the second time. Seth is an excellent and demanding teacher who, more often than not, models that which he teaches.

I thought Seth was a genius

I thought Seth was a genius until he done an episode on ‘genius’ on his other podcast Akimbo. Either way this is incredible content!!!

Adam K ,

Seth speaks in a Language that is understood by all who listen. Simplicity.
