Bill Bennett has appeared on my podcast four times. He has walked five Caminos, directed 16 feature films and ten documentaries. His latest film, Facing Fear, follows PGS - Intuition is your personal guidance system. Bill takes us on a journey to learn about fear - why we're fearful, what fear does to our psyche, and how to live fear-free. This is a brilliant film. Trust me, you will love it. Bill is a friend, but he's also a master storyteller. You'll love this chat about overcoming fear.....and making sense of what it is that makes us fearful. Find out where the film is playing - and organise a showing in your home town, here
Veronica Soebarto walked the Camino as an adventure of a lifetime, but soon discovered it was memories and moments from her past that meant the most to her.

Veronica's life has changed forever.

president Trump was one of the best Presidents we ever had. The breach of Capitol had nothing to do with him. Sad that the world believes our corrupt media. Trump called for peace and patriotism. It is the Democrat corrupt politicians that called for the riots. And fixed the election. They are so afraid of him that they rushed the impeachment so he can't run again in 2024.
