What a joy

What a joy to see this podcast come back after many years. I’m a 90’s kid so Alanis’s music is part of my youth. All I can say is that she is one of the most well spoken people I’ve ever heard. Her vocabulary is incredible as well. I wish she didn’t always have a guest on. I could just listen to her talk for an hour straight. In many ways her grammar and well spokeness are inspiring. She is also very intelligent and well prepared for her interviews. I know this all sounds like I want a date with her or something but listen to one episode, even from years ago and you’ll know what I’m talking about. Thanks for the music in my younger years and inspiring me now through this podcast.

i was hoping We could heal each other

and We did. thank you alanis for showing me myself- i now can term what was so elusive and seemingly problematic as hsp. thank you for your topics & guests. thank you for verbosity in excitement and tears in release. thank you for laughter at ourselves and holding space for it all. there has been nothing quite so quick to assuage or bring solace. you mean We really are all one? i think you do. namaste.
