Great Listen

This is one of the few podcasts that relates to anyone interested in personal development, enrichment, and exploration as it aligns to our society and culture. Tom does a great job of pooling in individuals from many unique subsets and backgrounds that are both relatable as well as intriguing. He does a really good job of keeping the flow and asking questions that are curiosity-driven and open ended to spur a conversation that is hard to stop listening to.
