thank you for being so personal and sharing your family and your story. It was very relatable to my father and I, and I plan to share this with him. Your faith is inspiring and I love how you tied it back into your story and even Water. It makes amazing sense. I'm going to go ground myself and figure out how to get good water out of my city's system.

Holy Smokes! Where do I begin? Is it possible to give 10 stars??? I've listened to several hundred podcasts, from several different shows. But over the months, I've gradually stopped listening to most of the others, while focusing my time and attention on Ben's podcasts. Why have I made that change? Primarily, because the topics that Ben presents are practical for real life, and the advice, tips, pointers and ideas can immediately be put into practice, to create a healthier and more fulfilling life. And I also enjoy Ben's zany sense of humor. He makes my daughter's giggle uncontrollably. Well... I thought I had heard just about everything from Ben's show, until podcast #423 came along, featuring Ben's father as the guest. Simply astounding stuff! This was life changing for me. Ben's father certainly shed some new scientific "light" on water, creation and verses from the book of Genesis, (that I have been struggling to understand for many years). THANK YOU SO MUCH for a 10-star podcast, and also for Ben being vulnerable and very REAL during the show with his father. I am using this episode as a means to introduce many new people to Ben's podcast. I just set up a podcast app for someone this morning, and downloaded episodes from Ben the Man. Keep crushing it! Please, keep it coming! Blessings from Jake D'Amico, in Wisconsin, U.S.A.

One of the best podcasts ever! You truly approached the aspect of the whole person, body and soul. Brought me to tears! How I wish I had my parents here to thank them, and apologize for the miserable alien being that I was! God love you!
