Rick asked me to be on his podcast. I listened to some before I made the commitment. He is such the kind of person I surround myself with. These podcasts are very important for so many reasons but the most is that they will teach you about humanity.

Wow, just wow! Rick is as real as it gets. Love this show; its honesty, depth and sheer entertainment! Thank You for doing the work you do!

This is a wonderful show, and one with a true ministry, though not in the traditional religious sense. Rick has a calling. He helps folks who are struggling with coming out in the LGBT community. His own personal journey for sefl acceptance and understanding has given him the tools to help others. He's a wonderful host who knows how to draw good, meaningful conversation out of his guests. It was my honor and pleasure to be one of those guests.
