Magnificent

I feel as though Doug provides a weekly outlet for people to tune in to, allowing us to escape our monotonous routines and reflect on the deeper virtues of life, and practical ways to access them

“Carpe Diem” to All Humans. May “Weather of the Mind” long live and prosper

I see this podcast as a great international tool, but more focused on immediate benefits of a close-knit community. Local. Those daily in our Immediate surroundings benefited by Truly discovering and learning more from each other.
How we can all be more compassionate and understanding on our paths. Yet, always remembering the nitty gritty and realness of some of our relationships with others best coined as, “ I love you, but I don’t have to like you. “

We can disagree with others without being disagreeable.

I praise Doug over his numerous years that I’ve only subtly known him through a few phone calls, emails and 1 time meeting in person... for his vigilance, persistence and pursuit of dedicating his life and existence toward improving lives.

“Weather of the Mind...”
Our minds are just as the weather is (constantly changing each breath of air we breathe)...and this is a great podcast in which Doug dissects various aspects our minds take us in this life. This podcast has no boundaries and is true Art.

I believe Doug is a true anthropologist. A true philanthropist.

A sobering podcast

Great podcast! Love the format, music, and the interactive nature that encourages people to take the podcast outside.
