Why is Paul orange?

I’ve followed Paul Akers for several years and have noticed his subtle decline into a citrusy hue. It’s not natural and I’m genuinely concerned .

Really great show!

Loving this podcast. Episode topics are interesting, the content is incredibly helpful, and the episode length is perfect. Keep up the great work, Paul.

Generosity Press!

I was a big fan of the early episodes of AI when Paul and John had a radio show. Releasing books like this in the form of podcast is exciting. I look forward to each chapter and upcoming books and plan to listen to each multiple times.

Edit- video podcasts are brutal. It causes buffering on the poor work Wi-Fi so now I’ll simply delete it if I get buffering. I go to YouTube go watch videos and podcasts for audio.
