10/10 do recommend…

When I am feeling very temporary this podcast fills me with enriching topics that slowly dissipates the existentialism. In a very good way. Alex is a thoughtful, thought-provoking and talented host. There are layers to this podcast that gives you actual substance and well worth the time to listen.
