Profoundly relatable

I’m a long life learner. I seek learning and insightful aha moments in everything I do. This is one stop that gets me there quickly. Each episode hidden behind hours and hours of practice and preparation. Highly recommended.

Trudeau love fest

Wow, it’s Trudeau a narcissist! I think I finally listen to someone who loves himself more than Trump loves himself. And the man interviewing him was so infatuated with him that it was totally obnoxious.

Not what it used to be

I used to love listening to these until they started putting a political agenda in it. I’m so sick of people force feeding me their opinion. Let me do my own research without you handing me something that favors your opinion.
