Profound and pure to the core..

I feel completely at home here - bowled over by brilliant advice and nourishing conversations.

Krista is absolutely world class at extracting those bits of gold that will make a meaningful impact in her listeners - can't recommend On Being enough if you're interested in exploring your own personal and professional evolution & development. 🙌

Good Content; Awful Delivery

I was so excited to listen to the Esther Perel episode, but it took several sessions to be able to listen to it all as the host was just so abominable when it came to expressing herself succinctly. She would use “um” “so” and “uh” repeatedly before every single question, and often sounded like she was agreeing with Esther too eagerly when she perhaps was not able to keep up with certain references. It was painful to listen to her parts of the interview, despite her probing questions.

Restoring my faith in humanity. And humans!

My somewhat grandiose review title aside, this is easily one of the best podcasts around today; and not surprising considering the amazing work of Ms. Tippett over the years. The conversation move at the pace of intelligent discourse - agreeing, pressing, probing, and even disagree with the guests - but always bringing out their best and most interesting ideas. There is human drama, discovery, even fascinating contrition. These are people that I would not otherwise likely meet in my normal daily life, but thanks to Ms. Tippet, I get the chance to do so; and my life is a bit better better for it.
