My Favorite Podcast…FitMind

I really enjoy FitMind. The guests are really well chosen. In fact, I usually go to some of the Ted Talks and You Tube lectures after I get a particularly interesting or relevant topic. I have learned a lot from Liam’s questions and the guests’ dialogue. This information has helped me to grow spiritually and not just in the meditation realm. Thank you so much! Maybe someday you can have Gary Zukav as a guest. He would be a good one for your show. Thank you again Liam for the good work. It makes my day seem brighter and more productive.

This podcast and the meditation app changed my life

I had practiced some mediation before but it wasn’t until I tried the FitMind app and later on began listening to this podcast that I made a drastic change. I was in a dark place and didn’t have much hope for a better future. It’s now been a year since I began a deep journey of healing, forgiveness, and growth. I love Liam’s approach bringing together Eastern and Western knowledge but with acknowledgment and respect. For a person like me, I feel it wouldn’t have worked otherwise. This podcast has been inspiring, and uplifting. Liam’s voice and personality is the perfect combination of sweetness and straightforward, clear, intelligent communication. I have recommended this podcast and the app to every person I love and wish well. I’m forever grateful.
