Fresh and honest
There are so many podcasts that sound so "produced." This podcast that focus on creating a life of mastery is so refreshing. I love Josh's style - it is fresh, real, authentic and honest. Terrific new podcast! Thanks Josh and keep up the great work!
Great topic! Awesome show!

I want to be not better than my fellow man, but better than what I was yesterday. And this podcast is definitely right up my alley.
