I appreciate the mix of guests and Abe’s way of maintaining the flow in each conversation, but also allowing for silence. Can’t wait to hear more!! Love the original artwork and music!
I’ve listened to the first four episodes, and “Genuinely” found “Useful” nuggets in each one. Especially useful to me are discussion on stillness (02 Cycling Through Remembering) and truths (04 Helicopters). Conversation can help participants — and listeners — understand themselves better! (Full disclosure, I’m Abe’s dad.)
My new podcast self-review
Of course, I'm going to review my own podcast! I enjoy this show as a creator and as a listener. The format right now is fun for me as it brings together music I've made and interesting conversations with great people that I'm fortunate to know. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I do!
