Insightful and inspiring

Jen and team you did an amazing job with this series!! I binge listened to this and was absolutely astounded by his journey! I’m a person of faith so I choose to see God in everything so this has just had me in tears!!! Thank you for your dedication to telling this story in such a detailed way , but with a lot of humor - it was so wonderful and easy to follow! I am from South Africa so I looking forward to hearing him give the Mandela Day speech- hopefully I can get to meet him! That’s my aim and this content is so helpful in me preparing that request :)

Ps: I love Chicago! I’ll tweet you next time I’m in town 🤗
