A New Perspective

The host puts a new perspective on fear that is entertaining in addition to intriguing. A unique podcast that definitely stands out on its own in a brilliant way.

Great Podcast

Looking at the title I was skeptical but listening to this podcast has put a spotlight on fear. Where most people run away from fear, Johnny speaks to it from a position where fear can be healthy almost beneficial. Fear has always intrigued mostly on the negative, but on this podcast it leaves you with a different mindset on the state of fear and what fear can do both positive and negative.
