Worth the listen!

This podcast helped bring me out West! As a result, I’ve gotten to meet Devan personally and he lives up to everything you hear on this podcast! What a genuine guy! So many inspiring people and stories. It’s not only a great way to get a perspective on life out West, but it truly inspires one’s self to blaze their own trail 👏🏻
