I don't like this podcast. Formidable guests, yet we have shallow, uninteresting conversations. And the final part of Julia talking to her mom is so fake and uninteresting

Julia, congratulations on yet another wise venture!👏🏽 I have been enjoying and learning with each of the interviews. I only have two left to listen to, and I am worried I don't see any new ones since June. I hope you are just taking a summer break 😊 I am grateful I found your podcast! You are wise, so smart, milti-talented, beautiful, and funny. You even have a pretty name. Continued success and joy to you!
