    Emails from a woman who hates NPEs S1 Ep10

    In this episode I read an email exchange between me and this woman who hates NPEs and NPE podcasts. And I think it comes out funny. You be the judge. 

    It really dumbfounds me how nasty and mean people can be and then have absolutely zero ability to see themselves.  So sit back, put on your seatbelt and get ready to hate someone. Or maybe agree with someone.

Stunningly beautiful

This is the podcast I didn’t know I was missing. And I’m not even (at least I don’t believe I am) an NPE. So glad I found it. Storytelling at its finest

Marked as favorite!

Don has mastered the art of storytelling through his insightful questions and knowing when to push a little and when to just let the guest tell their story. There have been smiles, laughs, and tears all shed by myself as I listen to episode after episode. Thank you for sharing these stories!
