DrewFairman ,

Great Podcast!

I love the combination of astrology, astral projection along with dopamine detoxing and all of the other biohacking and nutrition. The collusion of these make it a really unique podcast and I would imagine Sean’s life coaching would be incredible. 😎

Ms. Franz ,

Love this podcast!!

Sean’s guests are consistently informative and up-to-date. Sean asks pertinent questions in an easy to listen to style. I look forward to listening every week.

Rachael_TSL ,

Awesome Host & Guests

This show is short, sweet, and packed with tons of wholesome goodness.

Sean is like a Renaissance guy who can talk data, science, love & relationships, farming, biohacking, wellness (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual), and also about spirituality.

I guess you can say that he leaves no stones unturned!

Worth checking out if you haven’t already.
