Beautifully elegant and mind altering dialogue
What a great podcast with phenomenal guests. I love listening, learning and reflecting with each episode. I feel like have to slow down with each listen and fully appreciate the deep and profound lessons.
Defining your own success
What a great listen! I love the concept of checking your ego before the interview, and I appreciate that the hosts challenge the guest for deeper answers without settling for answers ambiguous words like “successful”.
This podcast is everything!
As I listened I found myself laughing, bobbing my head to the music, and in deep introspection. Tiffany Raspberry’s episode is incredibly inspiring. I look forward to many more episodes!
