Excellent podcast

My thinking has shifted since I’ve started listening to your podcast. Thank you for the work you put into millions of people. The people rating this podcast with negative reviews sound like the DRAMA narcissistic people you teach about in your lessons. It’s sad that people would come on here to deflect their insecurities when you’re sacrificing your time and sharing your talents with the world. Keep spreading the word and continue to shine regardless. God bless you!

All podcasts

I love your podcast, it's my go to first. I wish you would do more on healthy relationships and positive and negative people. I happen to love some negative people, and feel they get a very bad rap.
I have constant trouble loading these podcasts, and not sure why.

Waste of Time

Inaccurate, poorly researched, out of touch with modern psychological studies and developments in the field.
