B. Birdell ,

Resonating

I have been listening for a few months. This week’s #596 Love Avoidance with Rebecca D was so relatable - I found myself vigorously nodding me head! Thanks!

kyleetheMiniMorbid ,

Love

I’ve listened on and off for years. Love Paul and all he does!

CIreneB ,

F*cked up and amazing

The things discussed in this podcast are deep and troublesome, but also funny, insightful, and illuminating. The conversations Paul has with his guests are so nonjudgmental and therefore so personal and open, and I always feel grateful after listening to these episodes. It truly does help normalize our own dark thoughts and have compassion for the struggles people go through.
