Powerful Eric ,

Great stuff!

I want to flourish, so I listen to The Flourishing Experiment! Thank you Kari for an awesome show!

kimalevy ,

Love this episode!

I’m new to Kati’s podcast, was pointed to a few past episodes and am very excited for the expanded focus (I’m a swimmer not a runner). Can’t wait to add this to my morning lineup!

Running Lifestyle

Been listening for a year now on and off.
Most topics are enjoyable and really help to get me through my runs.

Sometimes I have to stop and take a mental note of something because I want to remember it after the run.

Enjoy the down to earth honest discussions on topics and how the discussion doesn’t always go the way it was planned.

Enjoy both Kerri and Serena discussing topics and really showing sincere interest.

Keep it up.
