Bingeworthy

My niece got me hooked. Binge listened on a road trip to at least 3 episodes. I love the premise and Chris’ voice - his openness about mental illness, his humor and really his outlook for us all to be a little more open and kind. Inspirational, funny, and also that “wow” factor ... good stuff!

Heart warming and inspiring

This podcast is a true gem. Every episode has an interesting and informative story and a beautiful message that needs to be heard. Chris creates a kind, open, and honest atmosphere over the phone, which allows for these wonderful stories to reach so many people.

Surprising comfort - NSFW

One can’t help but become lost during listening to this podcast. No matter what the goings on in your own life, the presenting conversations typically bring with them a welcome escape from ordinary.

Callers are honest, essentially straightforward (with gentle chiding), and always - always - informative. Whether you’re living a life similarly to the caller, or the completely the opposite, drones of people are drawn to this show.
There’s a reason why.
