A Podcast worth your time!

With so many podcast out there it is very refreshing to listen to one that leaves you changed. Not only is Jared taking the listener more in depth into these social issues but he does a great job of taking us deeper on a human level to hear stories that really need to be heard !

Speaking Truth in a way that doesn’t hurt

I really appreciate this podcast. It’s given a voice to a lot of the things I have felt but couldn’t find the words for. Thank you Jared!

Fascinating interviews

Jared does an amazing job helping others tell their stories. Each episode leaves me inspired and enlightened. I especially loved the Amber Fogarty episode about her work with the homeless In Austin.
