Wow, Daniel M. Ingram interview was riveting. I’m not sure I understood everything that was discussed but it was entertaining. Mr. Harris you asked some very insightful questions.

Dan Harris is a really good interviewer

I appreciate Dan’s preparation for his interviews (even though I assume he has a great team supporting him in that - he is still the front man and very much in the present when interviewing someone). He does a very good job of fleshing out the salient points of interest, digging deeper at all the right times and not wasting time on areas that are (at least in my mind) less important. I appreciate that he follows up, defines terms, identifies people and places, and never forgets “us listeners” in terms of making sure we have good, clear explanations. Great podcast. Would love to hear more from TM meditators which is my current method of practice. Also, would be great also to have a written index of all the books, places or people mentioned during a podcast interview in case we want to read further or follow up on a reference. At any rate, thanks for all the hard work. I have learned a lot, and I always look forward to Wednesdays for the posting of new episodes.

Must listen for me!

I started with Dan’s first book where I started with meditation four years ago. Then started using the 10 percent app. I listen to this podcast every week. Every week.

My life has changed so much over the past four years and the 10 Percent Happier family has helped so much. Thank you!
