Great conversations on life

I love listening to this podcast. Alistair has wonderful conversations with all sorts of different folks in all kinds of different adventures. The conversations help me think and frame questions about how I’m living my own life.

Relaxing and inspiring all together

Love hearing from all these “ordinary” people doing neat, different things. Simultaneously super motivating and super mentally relaxing to listen to these interviews. Always something inspiring to take away. I love the deck of cards!
