Outstanding

I ran across one of the creators on social media and promise them I would check their podcast out. I am throughly impressed with not only their guest, but the authenticity of the conversation. Educational as well as entertaining. I will become a supporter and fan!

Required listening for adulting

Lots of podcast advice out there feels forced and insincere. This show is, happily, an exceptional example of a podcast getting it right. Relatable, thoughtful and done with good humor, this should be mandatory listening for adults. At least the ones I’m forced to deal with on the daily.
