A podcast worth your time
This podcast has become part of my Monday routine every week. Kollin and Ryan do such a great job of bridging the gap between recorded audio wherever it might be that your listening. They make you feel like you are right there in the moment with them. Beyond telling great stories, I’ve really enjoyed how I feel this podcast has encouraged me to listen to and appreciate stories differently. All stories have value and purpose, no matter how mundane, serious, silly, sad, etc...all stories can serve to reveal something to us. It just depends on how willing and open we are to really listening. This podcast is not only entertaining (it’s very entertaining) but it serves to teach us a great lesson about how we might be better people to one another, even just by the simple art of listening well. Listen to the podcast. It’ll be worth your time!
