A more considered and thoughtful perspective

Thanks to Ryan for providing a vehicle that enables thoughtful introspection. The daily stoic podcast offers both guidance and a mechanism for reflection that is helpful in framing life’s challenges however great or seemingly insignificant. The daily dose of insights and meditations has empowered a calming shift in perspective on many challenges I’ve faced over the past weeks. This podcast is now a daily staple.

The Daily Stoic is short enough to listen to every day. The content is high quality and challenges me every time I listen to it.
