Stories you didn’t know you needed
I tried out this podcast thinking, ok, this could be interesting. I was BLOWN AWAY by the quality of the interviews, the guests, and their stories. Every episode made me either feel emotional about the story, or reflect on my life, or both (usually both). I’m really glad I found it, and I can’t wait for Season 2. There will be a Season 2, right? Right?? Please make a Season 2!
I am humbled and grateful to be a small part of the incredible work you are doing. We cried as we listened. Thank you for this honor. ❤️
Nora and Erin work in tandem to draw out the stories of their guests and the lessons they learned. The episodes of the wandering nomad and the pilot who survived a plane crash are fun and exciting. They also made me think about the limitations I put on my life.
