Willa White

I listen to James and Timmy every week and really enjoy their conversations. But this week’s really got to me. I live in NYC and was out walking while listening to their chat with Willa and I found myself crying at different stages. All three of these men are such an inspiration to others and I’m sure they have an impact on many people’s lives. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing you in NY when you are allowed to travel here.

Massively helpful

As someone with an addiction and with very limited access to mental health care, I find this unbelievably helpful and insightful. Shutout to Blindboy for the introduction. You’re the best, lads!

Inspiration at its best
