Great listening

Wonderful content with a rich array of current topics. I wish they doubled their output.

Love it

I love the content but mostly I’m here for this beautiful cast of characters. These are actually my favorite people to have living /talking in my head.

KeelyPharmD ,

Can’t Stop Listening!

I absolutely adore this podcast. Not only do I enjoy the journalism, the topics, the discussion, the though provoking probes, etc., but I have also become emotionally invested in the cast members. I sincerely enjoy tuning in to hear more of their interpersonal banter, witty quips and each of their individual view points shared in an intellectual, yet consistently humorous fashion.
So glad I stumbled upon this podcast. Thank you for producing!
