Ayo is awesome.

I luckily got to enjoy a few years knowing Ayo during our most impressionable parts of our life. It is awesome to see an amazing perspective listening to an amazing podcast. I love hearing these interviews and someone like me, who is not an immigrant, can really learn a great deal. Keep up the amazing work, you are changing perspectives and therefore changing lives for the better. I am in the car a lot and this has gotten me through many miles. Thank you.
