Life changing work

I’ve been listening since 2017. No, I don’t follow every episode, but the path this podcast has set me on is something I’ll be forever grateful for. There aren’t that many podcasters who are creating their show from a place of genuine curiosity. Tim is one. Listen to the interviews with Martha Beck and Craig Frost. Or go way back to Jack Kornfield and Debbie Millman. You’ll find refuge for your heart in this man’s work.

A good resource to find new interesting topics

I like the show covering wide variety of topics, and helped me learning new (to me) and interesting subjects to further explore time to time. Having said that, not all episodes are interesting (again, to me), the interviews are designed/structured around the host’s personal interests…not necessarily optimized for the delivery of the topic/concepts to the audience.

Missed the mark

Tim, I have a great deal of respect for you and for your podcast. I’ve listened for years. I was disappointed to hear you giving Matt Pottinger a platform with no push-back. He’s advancing a fascist agenda and you simply stepped aside and let him do it like Lex Friedman. You’re better than this.
