Wonderful and inspirational guests and topics. I listen nearly every day since I discovered this podcast. Thanks for sharing.

Stick with Eric

I’ve been listening to this show for some years and Eric’s interview style and formula has been the perfect ingredient.

For me mixing it up with other hosts does not work and it’s putting me off my favourite show.

The One you Feed

One of the most amazing inspiring, comforting, uplifting, hope giving podcasts, I have listened two or three tones to some of them nd the one with Nir Ayal, and Julia Cameron and Sue Monkk Kidd -
Could gmin forever, just love it, so intelligent with out being preachy or pompous and very funny too. A great accompaniment for lock down walks during Covid - love it and have shared it many time’s with friends. Thankyou so much Eric!
