Must-listen

This is one that gets a listen as soon as it hits my feed. Corey always has food for your soul; really food, you gotta chew this, digest it, let it become part of you. Nourishing. Sometimes challenging. Always necessary.

Direct, open commentary on today's issues

I've listened to the first episode--and I have to say, I am extremely pleased to hear plain and direct talk about what's going on. No euphemisms or talking around the hard truths. This is blunt and honest and real, and it's time we have these direct conversations without trying to make the hard-to-swallow things palatable.

This is off to a great start. Am looking forward to the coming weeks--maybe years!--of more of these podcasts.

**** Added

A couple of things you should know about Corey. First, he's a gentle man, but he's smart, insightful, he sees things--and he shows that he is a healer because he's a truth-speaker and a builder.

You could not have a better person in your life to tell you when you're doing well, and when you need to go take a look at your hygiene routine because you've got some issues.

You build trust by telling the truth, and you do so by speaking in genuine love and compassion.

I listen to this podcast because I hear a genuine man sharing who he is, and I admire the qualities I see in that man.
