Practical, Engaging, Thought-Provoking
I love this podcast. Dr. Maxwell is a deep thinker with an extremely high bias for practical action. Each episode is a balance of evidence-based material and extrapolation, often illustrated by Dr. Maxwell’s personal life experience—narrated with refreshing candor.
If you’re looking for a podcast that takes on the issues with directness and sensibility, challenges your thinking, and promotes action and self-help, you’ve found it!
I grew up in the christian hedonist camp and never felt like i was good enough stiil dont. This is very thought provoking. I feel guilty for even liking what he is saying. But something in me is saying maxwell might be right!!
