This is a well-produced, and frank podcast. The host knows how to interview and pace her show, and her guests are knowledgeble, perceptive, and compelling. Highly recommended, if you experience lonliness or are interested in it as a more abstract issue.

Brilliant!
I usually have to drive long hours for my commute to school... this is the perfect podcast whether I'm driving through the dark hills, or on the busy 5 fwy. It cannot get any more cathartic than this! Thank you! I look forward to more episodes!
