||Clean'Heart of the Matter' Trailer||A short trailer with a snippet of some of the conversations I have had for this podcast. This podcast will begin early 2019 with a first short series. I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with a selection of wonderful, interesting, creative and inspiring individuals. This first series includes discussions I had with people I have a great amount of respect and admiration for. The discussions meander and vary with these wisdom seekers and change makers from all walks of life and having carved their own unique paths and directions.||1/22/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
