Your podcasts are amazing! I’ve shared them with so many people. You really have a way of speaking about the fundamentals of AA that is relatable. Helped me get out of  several funks. Forever grateful for your service in this way. Sound like a humble, genuine and spiritually awake human being. Definitely someone who has something i want. Thank you for the inspiration. I’m 125 days into the program for the first time as a 39 year old. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Good morning,I’m new to sobriety with AA, and your podcast was shared with me by my sponsor.
