So much knowledge

I have been listening to a lot podcasts for 2 years now by far this one is so much different and the best. It is like taking a bite from every dish.
It is about every topic that might interest you either mentally, emotionally or physically.
Guests are so knowledgeable and informative.
One of the best episodes ever is the one with Payal Kadakia and Shawn wells(I had to pause a re-play some of the parts to make sure i digest all the information he said).
Listen in the car, this time is wasted already but can be useful more than you can imagine.

Use to be good.. what happened

It use to be good but now they only feature speakers that work in their platform so very bias circle. Seems diversity went away

@laniciamedina__ ,

10/10 Highly Recommend

Absolutely love Vishen! I look forward to each episode! They’re so helpful and can be applied in all areas your life. Looking forward to many more!
