I’ve always enjoyed Nic Gabriel in his other Podcasts, I’m really looking forward to this new Podcast project with Thomas Faustin Huisking. I highly recommend it as I know that it will focus on progressive topics that will challenge your way of thinking or assist in asking questions that you may not have asked before.
