So many great and deep conversations. The episode with Glenn Lowery has to be one of the greatest.
Lex is the man
Great show but I wish they would add podcasting 2.0 tags so people can give value for value.
Love his work
I think Lex’s podcast is one of the best. It took me a while to “get” him, mainly due to his monotone delivery. However, I have gotten used to him, and really appreciate the content. I am a medical doctor by profession, and find his content very informative and mind expanding.
