The Stoicism Podcast hit the spot!

I’ve been really into the Fitmind App over the summer as I am on summer vacation - I am a foreign language instructor. So I have been turning inward due to the pandemic. In addition, I’ve also concluded that stoicism and mindfulness practice are extremely congruent and complimentary. I highly recommend combining the two approaches. Great podcast.
