This is the go-to show for unexpected laughter, and on the flipside, heartwarming sweaty-eyed tears as we learn new ideas to face the world with powerful suggestions to become stronger, more resilient and navigate the challenges we face. Zak integrates soulful music and his own wisdom with anecdotes about his delightful young children and accomplished wife, Shira. I highly recommend this podcast!
