    The Power of One Simple Question by Kristine Klussman

    The Power of One Simple Question by Kristine Klussman

    Kristine Klussman shares the power of one simple question.
    Episode 1388: The Power of One Simple Question by Kristine Klussman on How To Find Better Connections in Life
    Kristine Klussman specialized in Health Psychology (Behavioral Medicine) at Harvard Medical School, then founded and ran the Health Psychology program and post-doctoral training programs at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. She found her work with cancer and cardiac patients inspiring, uplifiting, and humbling. She found so many of those going through life-threatening illness were - sometimes for the first time in their lives - absolutely clear what truly mattered to them: authenticity and connection. In 2016, she founded a non-profit to focus full-time on trying to understand, explain and teach what she now believes is the single most meaningful and rewarding aspect of our existence.

Kaila D. Q. ,

Spotify ad is so annoying

I love the actual articles and the narrator’s voice. Def give a listen if you’re debating.

My 1 nitpick that’s keeping this from being 5 stars: The Spotify ads

The reoccurring Spotify ads are super annoying because they keep attempting to sell me on paying for Spotify’s premium download feature. Apple podcasts lets me download episodes for free.

Does the script writer realize that what they’re advertising makes no sense to the Apple demographic/customer base? Maybe they could add some other reason for switching to Spotify or elaborate on why Spotify’s premium download feature is superior, but the current reason is nonsensical where it’s left.

Thank you

Greg, thank you for sharing Leo’s post. He makes a good point.
