Awesome podcast!

I just found this podcast and have been loving it! It is just the right amount of information for me to feel like I better understand a world leader without getting lost in everything. I highly recommend this podcast.

A truly unique show

This podcast provides so much value and I can’t believe I didn’t find it earlier. It presents the stories of truly great men and the their struggles and triumphs in a way you will thoroughly enjoy. If you are in business, it provides a different prospective on what it takes to be the absolute best and what it means to succeed. The only thing I don’t like about this podcast is it sometimes highlights how some of these men are born with innate abilities that you and I just don’t possess but it doesn’t take away from the experience at all since these guys are one of a kind. We can still learn so many new lessons and you cannot pass this one up.

I’m dyslexic and I love history. Reading takes me a lot longer then for others. This is an amazing way for me to really enjoy learning about the past. Thank you!
