  • EPIC…

    Dario Calmese is a wonder. I have never met him but I play with thoughts of him being my BFF. All of the words of greatness that one would use to describe him; would fail. He’s a genius; a humble one. The voice! The intelligence! The cadences in his voice! Then there’s the talent-no words! more

  • I really didn't know where this ep was going.

    I've enjoyed the previous IBI episodes, but this episode was long winded, and didn't have any direction.

  • Never miss an episode

    I love this podcast because each episode evokes opportunities for self reflection, and allows you to tap into the collective consciousness as well. It’s juicy on so many accounts; intellectually, spiritually, politically, creatively. It makes my Sunday’s a true delight. Thank you Dario and the team who helps bring forth all this amazing content.
