5 Stars

Meryl is a fantastic host I learn a great deal about a myriad of topics I haven't given a chance before checking out this podcast.

Helped me make the decision to find some self help for some lingering issues and this show got me to seek the help I needed.

Love Hearing From The Guests

I think the format of this podcast really lets the guests talk about things they're passionate about, and that makes for a really energetic and fun discussion. I feel like I learn something new from each episode! They're a good length, as well.
