Came for Colonna, stayed for Crissinger
The long format interviews with Jerry are wonderful and impactful. I enjoy them slowly, savoring the stories and emotional communication. However, Andy’s more recent “extras” are power bites of nourishment to boost my daily practice. Thanks for both!
Jerry is masterful at interacting with people and getting to core situations. Much to learn and respect.
