Amazing Podcast!

I started listening to this podcast a few months ago because I wanted to infuse my life with a little more inspiration. Thankfully, that’s exactly what I got. I listen to this podcast usually 2-3 times a week when I’m walking or hiking, and I’ve gotta say, these episodes have been extremely useful for me and I can’t begin to explain how grateful I am for this show; It’s comforting, inspiring, thought-provoking, interesting, and meaningful. As a college student, this podcast has helped me get through many challenging weeks, kept me grounded, and increased my intentionality. Thank you for the awesome interviews and insightful information!😁
