Incredible

I’ve listened to many podcasts....this one is amazing - I cried quite a bit at the last ~ John’s words will undoubtedly stay with me for some time. What a mind. What a tortured genius. Thank you for doing, what I think, is a lovely job in letting us know him.

The best podcast ever made

I revisit it at least once a year and it is the standard to which I compare all other podcasts
