Stories that need to be heard!

Mayor Garcetti needs to listen to this podcast and provide housing to all of the unhoused people of LA immediately! Too many unhoused people and too many hotel vacancies not only during this pandemic but before, as well. Garcetti CAN do something about this but is choosing not to.
Incredible podcast! We need to hear these voices!

You inspire me to live!

After watching Theo’s video on YouTube I decided to subscribe to his podcast. I’ve only listened to two podcasts and just have to say thank you Theo for inspiring humanity. You are living out your purpose, please don’t forget that! Much love to you.
