Great podcast, thank you!

I’m new to Stoicism. I really enjoy the readings and then following up with Steve’s interpretations of the readings. It has really peeked my curiosity and helped guide my own interpretations. A short of lay person’s Stoic sherpa! Also love the guitar vibes. Thank you so much!
