Makes mundane tasks magical

I recently completed a very ambitious house painting project, if it were not for this podcast I would have given up. Somehow the hours and days spent painfully perched on a ladder are remembered fondly as ‘my story time’. Thank you for filling the world and smart phones with really really good stories and thoughtful discussions.
