I've been looking for something to feed my mind and heart during work and this podcast has suited those needs. Amazing podcast. Because I'm writing this review while this show is still new I've listened to each episode at least 4 times, but the amazing thing is that I've not grown tired of doing this.
Stellar! Incredible Perspective!
The stories, mantras, and a refreshing perspective on philosophy. Well balanced, accessible, and increasingly entertaining!
Worth every minute
Very engaging and thought provoking. Every episode leaves me thinking the rest of the day. The way he reads is great. Not too overdone but not bland either. The score underneath his words is amazing as well, that's probably my favorite part. I recommend this to everyone anytime the word "podcast" is spoken.
