MichaelUnbroken ,

You must listen!

I think perspective is everything in life and one of the things that the show does so incredibly well is bring perspective into the forefront of conversation by allowing people to show up as they are and share their messages in a way that can actually impact people in a way that matters. Have a great amount of appreciation for what they’re doing and it’s one of my favorite shows
