Have you ever experienced trauma and tragedy, yet despite the pain and suffering it caused, you’re thankful for the experience, because in the end it made you better?
Can struggle and tragedy be our greatest teachers?
I think about that a lot…  
By age 25, both my parents died from rare cancers.
Some would call it unlucky, some would call it unfair, and some would call it their worst nightmare.
Me… I call it life.
Life isn’t always easy... And things are not always going to go your way.
At some point in your life, you will likely be a victim of tragedy.   
But despite the hardship you endure, you will also experience limitless joy. And it’s up to you to keep going and growing as a result of your circumstances. 
In losing both of my parents, I’ve lost a lot… but I’ve also gained a lot.
I’m your host, Danny Goldberg, and this is a weekly conversation about loss and tragedy and coming out on the other side of it, feeling stronger and more capable of living thoughtfully. 
Tune in weekly for stories and interviews about really hard times, and overcoming adversity to ultimately build a life that you love. This is Bits of Gold.

Thoughtful and Inspiring

Amidst so many podcasts in the self-improvement space, this show really stands out to me. Firstly, I’m 30 years old and I feel like the topics that Danny addresses with his guests are all highly relatable to me. Secondly, his guests are not typical podcast show guests. They all have really unique and inspiring stories and have either achieved some level of success or overcome serious hardship - or both! Highly recommend for anyone looking for some thoughtful, creative and uplifting conversations.
