This week we dive into how we found the "great" in ourselves. Through self-discovery and isolation we can discover a lot about ourselves and our motivations. Steph and CoolBlkNerd talk about their own paths to self discovery and how those experiences define who they are today.
Also, we chat about Madblkman's name change, morning routines, and meditation.
