Changed my mind...

What a powerful word in every episode! This podcast has become my key accessory for my runs! Two of my favorite things in life- - running coupled with learning about behavior!! Your face caught my attention..smart move to have a striking photo in the podcast store instead of the pic of a big brain that I typically see! Anyhow... I’m a BIG FAN now! Great job! Very engaging and I learn something new... each episode!!
