TAP 168 - Year End Listener Call In Extravaganza

Summary: 

In this episode I have the absolute pleasure of getting to talk to some of the less anxiety, more life community.  It was amazing getting to speak to some of our listeners and hear how far they've come in their own journeys.

This truly was my favourite podcast episode so far.

I love our community.
