I Keep Coming Back

Through the years, from the start of college (Around 2014) to present, I listened to this podcast. It has given me a lot to think about, and good advice that I’ve used in my life. It has introduced me to tools, books, and people that have improved or changed how I look at life as a whole.

Even now, I come back to listen to an episode that I feel I need a refresher on. Or, I find myself in a new part of life where an episode I didn’t previously listen to now can be applied. Even though your podcast is over, it still continues to provide valuable information that people can keep coming back to.

I’ve always enjoyed listening to your podcast on the way to college and home, and now to and from work and while I do chores.

I’ve seen a few people say they don’t like the banter, but, I really love it. All the podcasts I listen to and the only radio show I listen to has the same feel to it. It’s a bunch of people sitting around and talking about something with some jokes and banter thrown in. It makes it seem more like you’re listening to a conversation than a lecture. I personally feel more connected and like I’ve made friends that I can just chat with any time I want. So, thank y’all for all the years of work and dedication you put into your podcast.
