I absolutely LOVE this podcast

If there were more people as intellectually curious and open as Kurt and Tim we would be living in a more peaceful world. When I listen to the questions and conversations on Behavioral Grooves I feel energized to keep learning and engaging with people who have different perspectives than mine.

Add this to your podcast rotation!

Look, I know what you’re going to think. Another podcast with two dudes talking to each other. I thought that too and didn’t listen until one of my colleagues was featured in one of the episodes. And then, I realize that these are two really funny, smart, and most importantly, kind dudes talking to each other. It’s really worth your time! Thanks guys for a great podcast.
