The DC Podcast question this week: what is the biggest dream you’ve given up on?

Nic and Thomas discuss the dream that died and whether it was the best thing that never happened. Tune in for more about finding liberation after letting go of dreams.


P.S. don’t worry, the background noise doesn’t last the whole time. It gets better about half way through, thanks for not giving up on us.
