General thoughts about all of Oprah’s podcasts
In all honesty, Oprah’s podcasts are so heartfelt and I’ve had so many of what she calls “Ah ha” moments!!!! Its touched my soul on every level. I’ve laughed along, I’ve cried, I’ve experienced other people pain, along with my own. Its helped me along my own journey so very much🙏🏻 Thank you for creating such an amazing platform that is so beneficial to anyone who is searching!!!!
I love listening to Oprah‘s SuperSoul podcast. I find them fulfilling in a spiritual way. For me, these are like my moments of meditation during the day. What I would love to see is for the commercials in the middle of them to be removed. If advertising is necessary for these podcast, I would love for them to be at the beginning or the end so my meditation practice doesn’t get interrupted every few moments with commercials.I find it very distracting to have my spiritual journey interrupted with what I find to be the antithesis of what these podcast offer.
