Please come back

This is my absolute favorite podcast. The production and editing is perfectly balanced with narration and interviews. And I love that balance between levity and difficult topics. I was so sad to find out it was ending in 2019 and I hope it comes back!

Thank you and please come back!

I enjoyed this podcast so much and would recommend it every week to anyone that would listen! I hope you come back- the Thursday edition of how x gets it done was beyond brilliant.

Nooooooo

You’re not coming back?!? I have been muscling through the last few weeks thinking all I had to do was make it through the holidays and you would be back. I literally counted down the Tuesdays. I have been refreshing your page everyday just waiting for a new episode - thinking that maybe I just missed it. Please reconsider! You were on a VERY short list of podcasts that I listen to EVERY WEEK...and even went back in time to catch up on episodes from before I found you. I’m not ready to say goodbye yet :(
