This One

Maybe not everyone’s cup o’ tea—but it should be. Oolong or green, I promise you’ll find a taste you’ll enjoy herein.

It’s good to the last drop. And, that is not apt to my allegory.

Invigorating!

New subscriber! The conversations are so illuminating. I’ve always been fascinated by my own weird mind, and my funny (wildly inaccurate) way of explaining dysfunctional behaviors or relationships. It’s nice to have a place to laugh about it all. :) Thank you, David!

Amazingly informative and well recorded!

I just listened to the episode ‘Evil’ and although I’ve studied the topics discussed in this episode for a long time I still learned a lot of new and interesting details. The interviewer was very collected and led the discussion to all the right places; I was incredibly impressed by the pace and volume of topics covered (although I’m a junkie and I would have been even happier with a three hr episode on the subject- so I guess I should just buy the book).

If I were to make a slight criticism, it would be only that the interviewer was a bit too passive, and perhaps it would make for more entertaining listening if he’d engaged personally a bit more. I’m really happy with this find however and I’m excited to hear more!
