Very therapeutic

this show is entertaining and valuable with topics that are interesting for people my age. I love the discussion about the love languages, and other discussions about current topics.

Helped change my mindset

Although I’m slightly younger than these guys (only slightly) I’ve undergone a major career pivot that, together with other factors, has pushed me towards therapy and mindfulness meditation. Listening to this podcast immediately helped me see that there are real guys out there who think about things and struggle through things and that the things I feel are ok to feel. This show has two just fantastic guys at the helm and I've appreciated the guests they’ve had, the topics they’ve covered, and the authenticity they’ve brought to the show. Can’t say enough good things!
