Nourishing Content

Such nourishing content! I just finished the episode with Vivien Sansour and I took so many notes. So much food for though, wow—and thank you!

New favorite

I loved Finding Our Way so much, and waited for Becoming the People with eager anticipation. I am so glad Prentis is back sharing podcasts with us, and if this first conversation is an indication, they’re giving us the medicine we need in this moment. Deep bows of gratitude to the whole team. LOVE the theme music, too!

Listened twice and bookmarked to return again

I was so sad when Finding Our Way ended and Becoming was worth the wait. This first conversation with adrienne maree brown touched me to the point that I turned around and listened again. I cried, I took notes, I stopped and felt my feet. Highly recommend and looking forward to your book arriving soon! Deep gratitude for your work, stillness and generous heart.
