    429 -- 45 Lifetimes -- with Michael Thornhill

    There are any number of ways to address and treat trauma. Should you automatically nix one just because it's unusual or alternative? My guest today presents a compelling case for his approach...

    427 -- We Need Young Angry People -- with Rachel and David from All Bad Things podcast

    There's a meme that shows a kid sitting next to a poster of a group eating ice cream, as though the kid is part of the group, with a caption of, "how it feels to listen to podcasts." I can confirm, it's the same for podcasters. Sometimes we find a show and the first thought is, "I need to be best friends with these people, immediately."

S_Preda (Succession Secrets) ,

Present host with engaging questions

Kate is a well prepared and curious host who asks engaging and deep questions. Her conversations are satisfying.

J-Siri ,

The smartest person with a podcast

All I can say is this podcast is an experience we all need. Enjoy the binge. You will walk away a better person having listened.

J Hurls ,

Episode 50

2 women talking incessantly about things that have nothing to do with the story. Also, many facts wrong, and the “f” word overused. When putting a podcast out there about something like this, please confirm your facts. This is coming from someone who knew and was close with Dave. Kudos for wanting to remember him, and acknowledging he was a real person who’s life was cut short.
