    Haven't listened to the show yet, but I just read through the show description and about fifteen reviews, and every one of them was AI generated. I'm all for using tools, but there's no way this many people in a row are that lazy, so, there's some deception and manipulation at play here. May change this review after I listen, but in the meantime, not impressed.

    Informative, practical
    I love listening to this podcast, including John’s solo episodes and his longer-form guest interviews. He is SO prepared and asks such insightful questions that get right to the heart of his interviewer’s work. He is informed and pulls from knowledge of outside sources (science, ancient wisdom) and provides fresh, hopeful perspectives on modern living.

    Authentically Real
    Thank you, John, for your raw honesty, insight, and wisdom. As someone who has neglected his personal journey for many years due to family commitments and a demanding career, it is refreshing to start that journey of introspection and self-care with your help. Your authenticity in sharing your own struggles has helped me immensely as I know I am not alone and I can confront my fears and move forward. Keep inspiring us all John!
