A Lovely Daily Practice

I’ve taken to listening to this while I finish my coffee every morning as a sort of daily practice. I’ve been reading Ryan’s books for years and figured I wouldn’t gain much from the podcast. I am delighted to find out how wrong I was.

Child interruptus

Not a fan of including the son walking into the room and interrupting the podcast.

Would prefer more consistent structure

I really love the host and appreciate him sharing the wisdom of stoicism. However, I wish this podcast had more consistent structure. I listened to one show that was promoting a book - I thought it was going to be an interview with the author, instead it was 4 minutes of ads, a brief description by the host of an event in the book, and then an anecdote about cars that felt so unrelated I thought it was another ad. There are brief 10 minute episodes that feel like half ads or prolonged 1-2 hour interviews that feel like they could have been edited for conciseness. I’ll still listen for sure, and I remain a fan of the host’s books.
