Amazing Podcast!!!

I love listening to this podcast. Everything Mirai does is top notch! My wife even loves to listen to this with me. Something about Ryan Neil, he just pulls you in to every word he says!

Great conversations

Love the podcast. I listen to all the episodes and look forward to many more. Capturing the feeling of Bonsai doesn’t alway mean you’re talking directly about Bonsai. Fun and insightful conversations with artists, conservationists, and everyday people. 5 out of 5.
