Stress Workout Addict ,

Very informative!

Really impressed with Jason’s guests and their breadth of knowledge. Have listened to three or four so. Will continue staying tuned! A must podcast to have at the ready!

Krastoula ,

Becca Levy Ageism Podcast

I understand you want to sell your book, but you kept repeating the same ideas over and over again about positive beliefs! Got it the first time. Be generous and informative and share other tips with listeners who actually tuned in for that purpose! Also, starting every answer with that is a good question sounds so gimmicky and fake. A very disappointing take on such an important topic that made me stop mid-podcast.

Love this podcast!

Jason has such a great variety of guests on the show and is always super informative in these episodes. MBG has taught me so much on my wellness journey and i'm so grateful!
