Heartfelt & Vulnerable

What a beautiful, genuine reflection on the human experience! Thank you Jason & Whitney for all that you share and teach in this podcast!

PhoebeKinxz ,

Great new addition to my podcast library!

Just started listening, and so far I’ve been enjoying each episode and the organic flow of each topic discussed.

I love the respect and time that they give each other, to speak their minds and contribute to the conversation. Jason and Whitney are wise, compassionate, open minded and very knowledgeable about the topics they choose to discuss. They seem open to learning from their guests and don’t tend to lecture as if they are authorities about things they don’t fully understand. I think that lends much credibility to their discussions and I find it to be very reassuring.

Keep up the great work!
😊👍
