Awesome stuff!

Fantastic! Really enjoyed David sharing his story recently and I very much enjoyed the Jared Allen podcast since I’m a huge sports fan. Looking forward to hearing more awesome content with your future guests!

Amazing

I look forward to this podcast every week. Truly amazing

SO DONE listening to these narcissists

I was initially interested to hear this point of view on becoming awesome like these folks but I couldn’t get through the episode with the corporate lawyer who drove through an “unmanned railroad crossing”, killed his dog and nearly killed his family and then waxed rhapsodic about learning life changing lessons. Such as blaming someone else for your life-altering mistakes and going on about how great your dog was for sacrificing himself for your wife while never mentioning that it wouldn’t have been necessary if you’d just paid attention and stopped for a railroad crossing. The blithe lack of self awareness was breathtaking and infuriating and that, on top of several other cringeworthy comments over other episodes, has convinced me that this is not the podcast for me.
