Changed my life

As my life was falling apart, these guys brought me back to real. I have my life somewhat together (well, who has it all together?). And it was all thanks to these guys.

Wanted lo like this more.

Sorry but was really hoping you'd get to the deeper, "grey" areas of the issue of toxic positivity. I just felt you played around it, but didn't dive too deeply into it. Also the issue was not seen from a variety of angles so really felt uninformed, though idea of how class can play into it was interesting. I might try another episode at some point, but am hesitant.

Love it

Love, Love,Love!!! At first I thought it was a podcast on just letting go of things..but I’m slowly realizing (from listening to this podcast) that minimalism is way more deeper than that. You’ll definitely get a great listen from these guys. Oh yeah & I love the intro song! We need a full version of it lol!
