Great Addition to Feed
I was disheartened when I learned Iyaz was leaving Tech News Today. Now in retrospect it was a fantastic move if it meant he could do this podcast. Informative & relaxing with good guests. It's a topic I am always trying to achieve as well and it's nice to see someone trying to tackle it.
Personal, insightful and nothing to do with Superman IV
Iyaz and guests discuss their thoughts on finding happiness in a way that is personal and insightful. You get to hear their stories and the day-to-day things they’ve discovered help them lead the life they aim for, and they don’t pretend they’ve got it all figured out. Its inspiring and useful. My only quibble is that, at the time of writing this review, there hasn’t been an episode on the life lessons Superman IV teaches us. Quest for Peace is a wonderful show and I’m looking forward to future episodes.
