Hey guys, Leo here. Thought i'd post a quick message. I just wanted to let you know that I have joined your Patrons page. I have never supported anybody on Patron before but I have been so grateful to you all for the podcasts that I thought I'd show my appreciation. Heres a little bit about how you helped me!

So, back in August i was made redundant. It was very sudden and all happened very quickly. I have a family and a mortgage so as you can imagine the pressure quickly began to mount up. My wonderful partner works from home three days a week but her wage was quickly used up. I worked in the entertainment industry so there was no end of the tunnel in site and jobs were few and far between.

I managed to get some cash in hand work, it kept the wolves from the door but the hours i was having to work meant the work/life balance caused the stress to pile up and i soon felt like i had nowhere else to turn, I felt like, as the man of the house i was failing my family and ruining our future plans.

At my lowest point I left home in my car one night and just drove off... I had no idea where i was going or what i was doing to be honest, i just felt like I was no no longer needed, what was the point in me?

It was around this time, on my crazy long work commutes that id started downloading podcasts, I listened to Jordan River and heard you guys on his show, i started downloading your podcasts.

The evening that i just drove off, i'd put the bluetooth on in my car, for some unknown reason your podcast just started playing, it had never done that before. As i listened to your session you all made me smile, i laughed at your conversations, and felt a bond to you all that i missed from my old smoking buddies. I sparked up a single spliff and sat in my car, smoking and listening to you, by the end of the spliff i felt like a new man.

I decided there and then I would change my mindset and actively search out work, no more moping around feeling sorry myself.

Two weeks later, i had a temporary contract working for a great company, who have now offered me a full time position.

I download your podcast every week and it keeps me company on my missions through the London Blackwall tunnel. I still smile and laugh at the radio, although i dont think I'll ever guess that noise!

You will have my unwavering support for as long as i can manage, I feel it's the least i can do.

Thank you all so much, and know that you helped me turn my and my families life around.

Perhaps one day we can have a session, my treat.

 

Cheers Leo.

@leo-stile Im entertainment to, and yes man, it has been a really shit year! And i don't know whether the entertainment industry will return to what it once was. But Percys keeps me busy and takes my mind off things. We have an awesome friendly and supportive community man, we all suffer together lol

The dream of a real in person sesh for Percy’s keeps building. I have a feeling if it ever happens there will be more good smoke there than a local dispensary lol. Glad the podcast helps brother. It really is our connection to all of our stoner friends and every Sunday we get to roll another one and start where we left off. Excellent job with everything Macky, you make us look good 😉
