Optimism in a pessimistic world!!!

I’ve been listening to this podcast since late last year, and I’m really astounded by the positivity of it...not just that, but also the depth of the subject matter covered by it. Gabe is a wonderful person to hear, and he asks all the right questions to his guest(s). I’m a support group facilitator, and I recommend this podcast to everyone I meet, both old and new, simply because he gives it like it is, but, he also upbeat about it, and positive to no end, which is sorely lacking these days. To Gabe himself, I thank you for doing this, and I know there myriads of lives out there you’ve helped by doing this. Keep up the good work, and know that I will listen till the end of time, because you, sir, and a bright beam of light that penetrates the darkness of stigma, and will help get us to a better place, one podcast at a time. Excelsior!!!
