Heartwarming and Relatable

I am a bit late the review party, as Joni already finished up her first season of this podcast. I do hope there are more! I have really enjoyed the relatability, yet uniqueness of each guest. I first knew if Joni from listening to The Cultural Hall, and followed her on over here to her own successful podcast. I have appreciated the realness, emotion and insight from Joni as she effortlessly talks with her guests. I am writing this today particularly in order to give back to someone/something that has done good for me. #LightTheWorld

Fascinating, uplifting, real

Love it! This proves my long-standing belief that everyday people are extraordinary, and everyone has a story to share. I’m sucked in and fascinated by every guest. As a friend of the host personally for over 20 years, I thoroughly enjoy being able to listen to the conversations. It’s the next best thing to having my own conversation with her!
There’s always respect, open-mindedness, and just the right amount of humor, and even though some topics are really heavy, I come away feeling uplifted and enlightened. I feel I’m a better person from listening. Highly recommend.
