Refreshing

Love the show, Joe is a great interviewer and the guests they have on are inspiring! They keep the shows to an easy listening 30 minutes or less, which is nice as well.

Can 5 stars be underrated

I listen to this podcast series every time I work out in the gym lately. After my workout, I feel that my soul has been worked out more than my body. Truly refreshing! These are blessed men and women who share their stories. What a great example to us all.
