Love the podcast

I love this podcast, I love how soothing it is to listen to, I love the range of topics that are discussed, I love how interested and fascinated I’ve grown about the world around me, I love John Greens honestly and authenticity that is so much more rare these days. I just have one suggestion, would it be possible to release more of these podcasts maybe once a week or fortnight if you have the time? In any case, thank you for this amazing podcast, I give it five stars ⭐️

Made me happy, when I thought I couldn’t be

I’m kind of embarrassed to relate that this little podcast, as far as I can tell, has cured my depression. If you’ve reluctantly embraced nihilism as an inevitability/decided believing the worst of people is the most ‘intellectually honest’ way to live, listen to this show. It might help you remember how to hope, and how to use that hope to be less overwhelmed by all the awfulness, and to see the beauty. It has done that for me. I am very grateful.

Truly excellent

Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, sells life insurance better than John Green.
