AMAZING

I hate in my years of listening to podcasts, I only discovered this one after Apple’s recent update & formatting change with categories & how/where they are listed. This is truly one of the best all around podcasts I’ve ever had the pleasure to listen to, especially if you love true life human interest stories. With the time it takes & the huge amount of total garbage podcasts you have to sort thru to find these gems, I HATE there are not more seasons & episodes. I am praying that there will be a season 4 & beyond!! With a weekly episode!!! Keep up the great work!!!

An Unorthodox Life

I came across this by accident. I have listened to many podcasts and feel that this is one of the very best. The clarity of the speakers, the music not being intrusive and most of all the subject presented in a caring and non judgmental way.
As a Jew I will be in the synagogue in two days for our Yom Kippur. I will think about my family in the coming year-5780-and wish for strength for all those who need it. I will practice tikkun olum and continue to cook for and feed the homeless through my synagogue. My wish is for all those needing a sense of peace, love and kindness to find their way. And may podcasts like this help us to understand each other a little better.
