I’ve listened to five episodes of this podcast and I feel like it’s just the hosts and their guests patting themselves in the back for how “woke” they are. Unimpressed, unfortunately.
Have been a huge fan of Ruthie for years and I am so happy there’s a podcast! Extra points for Jed being the first guest too!
AHHHHH!!!! I have been waiting for this podcast for what seems like a lifetime. I’m so excited it’s finally here. Ruthie is literally an angel.

She is the most inspiring, genuine, kind, thoughtful, beautiful human being on the planet and has such a high level of emotional intelligence that people just can’t help but open up to her immediately. Miles is so intelligent and has such a strong ability to understand people and asks them such profound questions, he brings out of them the most raw and honest stories. The two of them together is literal magic and this podcast is going to help change and heal the world. The whole time I felt like I was in the room with them, listening to some of my best friends have a deep and meaningful conversation that just made me feel so many things.
