One viewer commented: "Terrific podcast episode about people pleasing, conditioning, Drew’s lived experience, and how he has continued to reflect, evaluate, and curate a more meaningful and intention path for himself. I enjoyed the episode! The candid conversation was awesome. BTW, I loved that scene in Runaway Bride, where she finally tries all the different types of eggs to really decide what she likes vs. trying to please others by choose the style of eggs they like. I liked the example! Another terrific episode."
