Excellent Listen

Provocative, challenging, and deeply intelligent. Leak walks us through some of the difficult cultural issues we face today. Existential elevates people over institutions and humanity over hate. Each episode is paradoxically both a landmine and a treasure. Leak is an expert and active listener and communicator and is a kind and compassionate advocate and ally.

Great voice (all puns intended)

Corey has a great sound to his voice. And his voice is one to listen to - all the time but especially now. Corey takes on timely topics with grace, compassion, and raw honesty.
