Fantastic show - bringing light to astigmatisms

I really enjoy this podcast. It brings many different topics and astigmatisms to the spotlight and sheds light on them. We can only grow and accept ourselves if we are willing to talk about it, learn from it, and face these things, and that is just what this podcast does. Definitely a great listen.

The best thing to happen to Podcasts

Brilliant execution of such the most unique narratives very honestly put forth, making this podcast relatable to every age, mood and phase in life. My savior on a rainy day!

Inspired!

Every episode, I am taken in by Jor’s soothing speaking voice and wonderful interviewing style. He asks every question that I wish to know, while getting straight to the point. The concept is brilliant, and the guests have been inspirational.
I am grateful for this one!
