Jonathon has great energy & shared a painful story that turns into a wonderful light! Pretty sure in the end Jonathan would experience it all again for the good that comes from turning lemons into lemonade, being persist, and seeking spiritual guidance when needed.
Love this guy!!!
Excellent podcast! Listened both to the Maire one and now Lizzie. Wow—such amazing storytelling and editing, with the perfect amount of narrative and interview. Also, Walton is hilarious—sardonic about these shameless psychos but also always self-ironic. He gets really good stuff from interviewees and lays everything out in such an amusing way. Also: great music. Love it!
Can’t stop listening!
I found this podcast from the pink shade postcast where Johnathin (sorry if I misspelled that) was a guest. This podcast is so good I can’t stop listening, but I won’t know what to do when it’s over! Update. Glad there’s a second season! Keep them coming
