Timeless wisdom that brightens every day
I listen to this podcast right when I awake every morning. No matter how I feel when I initially wake
up, I always feel wonderful after reflecting
upon the wisdom discussed In each episode.
I could do without politics.
I enjoy the podcast up until the host and/ or guests start talking politics. That’s not why I tune in. It feels like a bait and switch after which I need a shower.
Great podcast - I wake up to it daily
Ryan is a great interviewer and has many interesting (and unexpected) guests. I find the (almost) daily quotations of Stoic wisdom helpful and thought provoking.
