Meditation Moment

Long time fan, haven’t listened for a bit, was delighted by the meditation moment, what a great idea for those of us who listen to pods all day at work and forget to take breaks for ourselves.

Jamie Loftus is cool

Thank you for having Jamie on your show. I’m a big fan of Jamie’s writing. Jamie Loftus just keeps getting better and better at these things that she does. This was an interesting insight into how Jamie grew to be who she is today. Thanks y’all!!

Awesome Show!

John Moe is a treasure. I loved his previous show, “The Hilarious World of Depression,” and this one is equally excellent. The variety of topics and guests is excellent, and for me personally I love that it’s not preachy or pontificating and things are presented in a serious yet humorous and deeply human and caring way. John Moe isn’t a therapist, and that’s why I like the show. He’s a public radio host with a tragic personal story that makes him very relatable. Plus I just the feeling he’s legitimately a nice person.
