Too much great content

I love the content of the podcast, but the content comes out too frequently. I cannot keep up. It feels weird to say, “too much of a good thing,” but it’s true. Podcasts are not life for me, they are snippets of goodness to learn new stuff in idle moments. I implement new skills and read new authors all the time from the podcast. Keep it coming!!!

Game Changer. Best. Podcast. Ever.

I have listened to hundreds of hours of content on my 2.5-hour per day commute. Audible books, music, entertainment, politics, career podcasts, and more - I consider myself an authority on quality content. And THIS? This is the best I've encountered. My one complaint is that I only recently found HTBA - because in the past week or so since I found you, Pete, you have changed my life. Seriously. I am so profoundly glad this podcast exists. Talk about uplifting and practical advice! I have binged listened to about 20 episodes in 7 days - and I honestly wish I had more time to listen. I am so impressed with your positive vibe and contagious energy - not to mention the immediately applicable advice, tools, and tips. And then the way you package it all in each podcast summary is just brilliant. I'm in love. Thank you for this wonderful resource.

As a television news personality and researcher, she doesn't rely on traditional polling for her unique insights into U.S. politics; rather, she analyzes voters' emotional responses to help understand and empathize with them on a more visceral level. The reaction matters, but the "why" behind it matters more. It was this approach that allowed her to accurately predict the results of the 2016 presidential election and primaries.
