Matthias has such a soothing voice and it helps that the podcasts are interesting and feed the soul. I can’t wait for more topics and interviews.
I like that Matthias challenges your self beliefs and makes you question those pesky voices in your head.

This podcast can only get better with time because there will be more to listen to! I can’t wait!

Thank you for your interesting, challenging and educational content (not only here but on Instagram). I’ve learnt a lot about myself and my relationships.

I arrive at school at the crack of dawn (I’m a teacher) and prepare for the day whilst listening to your podcasts or your Instagram chats. I’ve benefited greatly from your wise words.
