so good

I love this podcast, it's intelligent and down to earth. J Brown knows loads about yoga and yoga culture and like his guests has cut his own path, so there are lots of interesting conversations and unique perspectives. He challenges people. He's funny. There's no cringe factor. I'd give this more than 5 stars if more were available.

I’m a big fan of podcasts and never heard that the host can be so selfish and so rude. First talking about 8 minutes about himself and how he doesn’t care about what ppl think about him how he runs the podcast and then trying to sell his workshops. I just skipped that part, sorry I just couldn’t listen to it anymore but as I really wanted to hear Bernie Clark I forwarded until I could hear what was supposed be the point of the podcast. Just listen to yourself and how many times you just won’t let the guest to stop his sentence. This is so impolite and makes listening the podcast almost impossible, as you always mention what you do. It’s all about you! You had Bernie Clark as your guest and would be polite to let the guest speak if you invited him and talk about yourself later. Honestly this podcast and the host did upset me and I’m happy you have a thick skin, and I don’t mean to insult you, but maybe it’s time to listen what your listeners tell you! There might be the truth ;)
