Great podcast, sound advice for modern seekers

Love the Jamie Catto podcast. Straightforward, no bull, honest, ‘real’ and I love that John is clearly also learning stuff too! I’ve listened to it several times as it’s so relevant to me right now and there’s so much juice in it 👍
Thanks guys

Lots of food for thought...and action

As a member of one of Jerry Hyde's other men's groups, I originally tuned in for that podcast episode. I've since listened to and enjoyed all the others and look forward to more to come. They are full of those little snippets of inspiration and insight that can spark ideas in others and give them the impetus to take action. And as a result, I've joined John's Pioneer Programme and am excited to see what we can achieve through our collaboration.
