Great Podcast

Some of the best books I’ve read in the last couple of years I was introduced to through this podcast. I highly recommend this podcast for the interviews themselves, and for the books and other art that are discussed in them.

Giving courage

Jonathan Rogers does a beautiful job of drawing out his guests. I’ve listened to almost every episode and each humble guest has something truly wonderful and worthwhile to offer to the listener. I’ve been given courage to believe that even I might be able put some words down on a page.

A weekly gift

The Habit is a major source of joy and encouragement for me, and is a weekly opportunity to see the world though other’s eyes. I am constantly inspired to, as is often said in the show, tell a truer story than ones the world tries to give.
