Perfect timing for something this incredible

I just randomly came across this, but it was just at the perfect time and these have me really thinking and for the better. Truly amazing

Every episode gives you something to think about

Jonathan always chooses topics that leave me with something to take away and think about. Taking into account the topics he brings up has helped me see my development approach from different perspectives and I think made me better for it.
