DON’T SLEEP!

This show is amazing. I’m learning so much! I’m mainly learning that I’m okay...a lot of my thoughts about how I feel...I’m not alone. Thank you so much Carvell for doing the work.

Appreciate this earnest question...how do we make things different?

Carvell dives deeply into what keeps us back, what hurts are carried and what comes when bravery brings us to choose truth telling. Have loved the interviews so far.
Just stumbled onto this podcast- I rarely hear one that asks me- ‘what about you? What bridge would you build? What wall needs tearing down? What wound needs attention?’

A fabulous podcast

Huge fan of this podcast. Carvell is thoughtful, well-spoken, and introspective. The guests he brings in have interesting backgrounds and perspectives, each making you consider things a little differently, whether or not you agree. Carvell is a gifted podcaster with a beautiful speaking voice and the ability to bring you along for the ride. He is relatable while also pushing you outside your comfort zone. Highly recommend.
