Fun Therapy with Mike Foster dives into the horribly messy parts of our stories (with a smile). Each episode features a candid "therapy" session with a key leader, influencer or artist. No talking points. No shameless self-promotion. Only beautiful imperfectness on display as we discover tactics to turn our setbacks into superpowers.
