This is an amazing podcast

This podcast is an essential service and one that I have appreciated greatly. If we are fortunate enough to continue to have access to these podcasts, I think everyone listening will continue to grow, however these podcasts have also built a basis to allow for our own individual self growth. What you listen to is a form of sustenance and these podcasts really help to feed the soul.

AUTHENTIC + NECESSARY!!!

Those are the first two words that come to mind when I listen to these episodes. Not only do Mario and Asia have an AMAZING flow of energy throughout, but they are also CONSISTENTLY providing important discussion topics and content that is transparent, informative, and relevant to the times. HIGHLY recommended for anyone looking to build language/dialogue around mental health as individuals and communities.
