This is a fascinating podcast and Maya’s voice is so soothing and calming. A truly wonderful and inspiring podcast.

I tried to give her chance… As an immigrant myself, I thought she would bring something else to the podcast world since she said that her parents immigrated to the USA; I was mistaken. Her whole personality screams sheltered and privileged. Plus the whole podcast is one big 0bama-is-the-greatest...Read full review »

Wow. I have been following Nora for several years and I watched her evolve. This was a beautiful and vulnerable episode. Nora captured grief in a way so few speak of and I am ever so grateful. Maya your work is fantastic. I have lots of incidents on my life where there have been a slight change...Read full review »

I love this podcast so much and this episode is the first one that made me angry. Nora is describing a parent’s worst nightmare and describing how matthew looked at her like an enemy. Matthew had responsibility to make sure their child-any of their children- were made safe. It will never be ok...Read full review »

Really resonated with me.. as I, too, have PTSD, and identified with her story. Gratitude for the conversation.. I don’t know if many people understand that a trigger can just crush the central nervous system .. as much as I do to mitigate the symptoms, it is difficult to admit my fragility...Read full review »
false psychology via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/04/22
This podcast is cliché, boring, and shallow. It’s actually painful to listen to the host who mistakes cleverness for authenticity and depth. It’s attempting to be profound and is just superficial and boring. The questions are flat. The guests are uninspiring because the host is too limited in her...Read full review »

This podcast always leaves me feeling better for having listened to it. The ultimate interview was the one with Ruby Bridges. I’m still weeping, it was so touching. Thank you so much for sharing these amazing stories!

Dr. Shankar cant get out of her own way and let the story unfold, talks too much and not story telling … she is part of Pushkin, should at least listen to Gladwell and learn basics of how to tell a story.

Perfect bite sized glimpses into change. Inspiring and educational! Especially enjoyed Hillary Clinton.

Maya is such an empathetic interviewer / story facilitator. The early episode discussing the KKK had me hooked! I have listened to that episode 3 times and shared it widely.

I just finished listening to the Holocaust Survivors Story with Dr. Edith Eger. Edith’s existential experience in Auschwitz is heartbreaking but also so inspiring. Maya Shankar is an amazing conversationalist; she really gets to the depth of people’s souls. This is the first episode of A Slight...Read full review »

Great to challenge the mind!
Mulletkitty via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/15/22
I am new to listening to this show, I started with a couple episodes and now I’m completely hooked and listening to every single back episode! I’m learning so much and I love hearing another side to things I never thought of, or things I thought I had an opinion of, this is opening my mind and I...Read full review »

It is always a joy, though a rare joy, to hear such a wonderful mind as Maya’s.

Love this podcast! Perfect combination of psychology, cognitive science, emotion and compassion. Keep up the amazing work!
Rookie ru via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/22
I love this podcast! Maya is so smart and kind and her interview skills bring out the best in her guests. This show is full of inspiration and information. I never miss an episode!
Saturn Pony via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/22
Wonderful podcast- loved every single episode so far. Please have Tommy Rivs Puzey as a guest!
Steph Bachi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/22
I would recommend the episode “I don’t feel like a boy” to everyone. Despite being more lazy rhetoric promoting ‘transgender ideology’ it is a great insight into the madness of this current craze that convinces people that it’s suddenly acceptable to believe that 3 year old are capable of life...Read full review »

I am so glad I found this podcast. I learn and crow with each episode. Great interviews with interesting guests.
momclrh2o via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/27/22
An excellent podcast, always interesting and thought provoking.
dldnh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/22
Maya is a very curious, engaging, and empathetic host, and has the most interesting subject ideas! Interviews with her guests always sound like a chat between two (incredibly well read!) friends and I gobble up new episodes.
MazP88 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 06/20/22
Maya, Please listen more to your guests. Allow them the space to speak about their work rather than interrupting and speaking over them with your interpretation. Selection of topics and guests are very interesting. Thanks for listening. My rating is reflective of this interviewing style. Carla

A beacon of hope backed by science in a time where hope is what we need. This is such a beautiful thing

I have been listening for about a month and loving it! Tried listening to the latest episode this morning and got an error message saying that I can no longer listen without a paid subscription. Sad to hear this because I was really enjoying it. Adding a new subscription on top off all others...Read full review »

I found Dr Mia thru her interview with Kate Bowler. I started following Kate after my cancer diagnosis and have loved her ever since. Finding Dr Mia was has been a total gift. I’m bingeing every episode and loving them all. Thank you helping us rethink how we think and why and helping us see that...Read full review »

Topics chosen, agendas, interviews… insufferable.
JMNC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/22
There is a lot of white privilege in this podcast. I have listened since the beginning and I can’t recommend.
etherdog via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/22
I started listening to meditative story to have something rewarding during the (just about daily) laundry folding). I put it on as background noise initially, not realizing the impact it would grow to have on me. The stories were so rich and meaningful, I realized I wanted to elevate my listening...Read full review »

The topic of change is an original idea that I was excited to explore--it plays a big role in all our lives, and it's interesting to hear the role it's played in other people's lives. Lots of people don't ever experience the kinds of change tackled by this show, which makes it...Read full review »

Love this episode! This podcast always has great content and really enjoy inspiring stories like this!
TS lover! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/26/22
I REALLY WISH U DIDN’T EDIT THE SHOWS TO MAKE THEM SHORTER. I THINK YOU’D BE VERY SURPRISED THAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY WANT LONGER PODCASTS THEY ENJOY! You can’t get past enough of the surface stuff, down to the real meaning of things before the show’s over.
Ang09090909 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/22
Love this podcast so much. Really aligns with my non-profit, Memories Live memorieslive.org. Storytelling is so important, gets you the essence of who we are and how we got here. Thank you for navigating this so beautifully.
kerry816 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/22
This podcast is a mixture of intimate conversation combined with beautiful and poignant insights about our human condition and how we evolve.
PHB2019 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/22
This episode of the 22 year old sister seems to show such poor judgment on Dr Shankar’s part. It feels exploitive. What was the change of plan? My sister died and I have to change my wedding expectations? She needs time and and therapy-not a tape recorder.
Ann-no-e via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/22
Maya is such a kind and thoughtful interviewer and I really enjoy the vulnerability and frankness of the conversations with the guests. Zooming in on these life changing experiences of others makes me feel more resilient in my own life. It’s not always a typical “feel good” podcast, though...Read full review »
Peanutbutter_and_Celli via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 03/20/22
This is such an inspirational podcast. Amazing guests and fascinating real life stories about the resilience of humans. Dr Maya Shankar asks the perfect questions which enable the guests to share their experiences and allow me to fully immerse myself in the story. I can not get enough!!
Sik_Mik_R77 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/12/22
Maya is an incredibly gifted interviewer. She has a unique way of cutting to the heart of the matter and mining it for all its nuance. I look forward to few podcasts as much as I do this one.
SCOTTCE33 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/22
Thank you Maya for sharing your story!

Recommending to anyone who will listen.
Azuradec via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 03/10/22
But it going subscription like so many other podcasts is really disappointing.
LBS301 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/10/22
I LOVE this podcast. First of all, Maya is a great interviewer. And she is beyond articulate. The storytelling is why I came to this podcast. I love hearing peoples stories. The format is great. Wish the episodes were longer because I can’t get enough. Highly recommend!
Photomomcincy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/22
I started listening to true crime but i don’t really have an interest in crime, i just wanted the premium storytelling. This podcast scratches the itch perfectly!

I’m always left in awe with inspiration or moved to tears from every episode of this show. Maya is so gentle and her soft way with words is a beautiful reminder of the strength in empathy and the power it holds to unite us. Thank you for sharing!

Love this podcast. Really cool hearing people’s stories of big changes they had to go through. Some episodes are definitely better than others but overall really great show.
