A Message from Dr. Zachary Stier

Being in this podcast was rewarding. I was hesitant to share my story because of have sensitive it is. Rick offered a space of peace and calm to allow me to feel comfortable to share. I hope my story helps at least one person. We must own our truth and story.

Perfect Podcast For Gay Men & Women

Rick Clemons is a fantastic interviewer. He’s so comfortable talking to so many people and obviously makes his guests feel comfortable as well. I had the pleasure of chatting with him and I could have gone on forever. The topic of living an authentic life outside the closet could be discussed for years and only scratch the surface of all the coming out stories that exist. Love his varied guests and the stories they have to share!
