Real discussion

Cal & Cathy’s discussion facilitation with such a broad cross-section of disciplines and professionals affirms what I’m doing while at other times challenges me to improve or do differently. Glad to have this resource.

What our industry needs

“My state was the epicenter of the COVID-19 crisis when I first discovered this podcast. I remember feeling acknowledged, validated and comforted at first listen. Over time, I’ve continued to enjoy Cathy and Cal’s compassionate demeanor, been entertained by their humor, and appreciative of the new-to-me perspectives of their many brilliant guests. I’m consistently impressed by their dogged yet pretention-free commitment to science and facts. This show is a must listen for any bodyworker interested in becoming not only better at what they do, but aspiring to be better at who they are.”
