SO enriching

This podcast is just part of a massive stage of growth and development I've been taking myself through (again, as it never ends... ;) ) but it's so smart and insightful and spurs all kinds of ideas and insights for me about myself, my creative projects and life. It's wonderful, I'm recommending to all my friends!!

Fun and Smart!

I love any opportunity to learn, laugh, and be a little challenge. Monica does a great job doing this while managing a live audience.
