A question for Michael 💜

Hey, Michael. I just listened to your most recent podcast (11/21/22) featuring your fantastic interview with Sadhguru. I will definitely be listening to this one again, and again! I can’t tell you how much I got out of it and how inspired I felt while listening to it. Thank you Michael! BTW, I am a huge fan of your podcast, books, appearances on MSNBC, and your movement, Mea Culpa. My question is - what is the title of the book on Karma that Sadhguru said he would send to you? My heart goes out to you Michael. I too have trouble staying peace regarding a personal issue. I’m finding support through a spiritual teacher by the name of Panache Desai. You might give him a listen. He was on Oprah in 2013, I think. He’s written some books. Or maybe you’d consider having him on your podcast. ‘Just an idea.Thank you for all you do, Michael! 💜 Mary

Love your show but get some tips

Please keep doing what you do but get someone to coach you on your “delivery “.
Your “urgent tone and exasperation” are at about an 8 out of 10 in intensity and you need to average more like a “ 6 “. You just come across too forced sounding.
Keep doing the show and keep fighting against all things trump.
Thank you!
