Excellent!

Loved listening to Matthew! Highly recommend his podcast. It was funny, touching, and made me think about many things from a fresh perspective. Matthew will go far - what a talented guy. I hope we get to hear more from him.

Stop and Think

I love this podcast! I have shared it with my children, and it has sparked many great conversations about diversity, compassion, and gratitude. The Brick by Brick episode was especially poignant as we are a LEGO-loving family. I loved the insight about how building things gave perspective as to the shape and appearance of objects that might otherwise be hard to “imagine”. I am so glad that there is a growing ability for sight-impaired kids (and adults) to enjoy building LEGO sets!
