courage to let go
Dan Cumberland's podcast blends intelligent discussion with his own deep passion for this "movement": a movement about creating meaning in our lives and our work. In my case this has (so far) involved letting go of a "good" job I no longer enjoyed. The series of episodes about fear were especially helpful.
A breath of fresh air
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dan early on in his process of figuring out his own work. And I’ve been so thankful for those conversations. This podcast gives me the opportunity to reflect on where my life is going and connect with other like-minded souls to hear their inspiring journeys. I love this podcast because it’s real people living real lives that simply want to make the most of their time and space on Earth. It’s something that the entire world needs to be stirred up to hear! We all need to live in our sweet spots.
insightful & helpful
I really appreciate Dan's ability to blend the micro-scale/detail oriented/pragmatic side of conversations about what work we should do, with the macro/big picture/deep questions of why we should do it. He has this ability to have the mundane/nitty gritty just nestled right up next to the profound, which is impressive.
Dan's a great interviewer and he lets his guests shine. And, not unimportantly, Dan has great diction, which, really, is a podcast must.
