I enjoy the majority of guests and talks! I’m not Irish but I dig them.

healerfrank ,

Come on.

I’ve never listened to this podcast before but the first twenty minutes with Blind Boy was an ad for patreon. Please give me some content before I have to pay. Entertain me or inspire me and I’ll gladly pay. Come on lads.

DNA says 1% Irish

I’m clearly not very Irish.......but I enjoy this podcast very much. The interviews are thoughtful and inspiring. A great escape for a long commute in Chicago.
