    Awesome interview – what a treat! Thank you so much, Katie. (I especially appreciated your honesty about how you got tongue-tied at the beginning of the interview — and boy, what a nice guy he sounds like!) I finished reading his book last week – WOW, talk about eye-opening… Thank you so much for so highly recommending it!

    Awesome podcast. For a few weeks Katie, you have suggested Jonah’s book “Imagine” as a great read and that the book was available on Audible.com. I took advantage of your free download offer and am listening to “Imagine” and loving it!! I was thrilled to see Jonah was your guest this week and thoroughly enjoyed the discussion. Thank you for keeping me informed and inspired.

    Oh my goodness, thanks for sharing about this book! I can’t wait to read it! I loved the part where your talked about ADHD because my husband and I and my daughter all have it. It’s so good to hear positive things about ADHD and it’s creative potential!
