Great and relatable!
This podcast definitely stuck with me. I generally don’t listen to podcast’s that often and never have the free time to enjoy one but lately I have been in my head so much and to hear from someone else that generally feels the same way as me, especially since the pandemic kind of lifted some weight of my chest to know I am not alone and this is all something we are all walking thru in this life together. Definitely opened my mind a bit, and put me at ease with where I’m at & where I’m heading just by seeing inside someone else’s perspective.
Come get programmed by the AGENDA
No reality here.. just a blue pill overdose. Enjoy ur audible brainwashing. Btw, r u sure ur white washed?? Maybe u were just black balled 😂 💯
This is the most interesting podcast out there…no cap.
I could listen to this all day - to be fair, i’m in my own head all day so to hear others’ running commentary is right up my alley.
Check this out for a unique and introspective experience.
