    Granger I have yet to hear your music. Yes I may have and didn’t know it was you, but have heard your name on the radio here in Minnesota. I guess I need to go buy your cds. Your vlogs are what have caused me to tune into you and Amber on arise. All take care and stay safe.

    Granger, music artists don’t have to have number one songs for me to follow them. I like that they are down to earth and realize that it’s the fans that keep them going and making money by buying the tickets and the merchandise, joining the fan clubs. Stay down to earth and be respectful of the fans.

    My stepdad came into my life when I was 6 years old. I had already had a previous stepdad that had adopted myself and my sister when our lil brother was born, after him my mum had a violent partner that didn’t care if we saw the violence or not. Then my mum really hit the jackpot, she met my 2nd stepdad. As far as I’m concerned he is and always will be my dad. All through out my childhood I hated him so bad, my behaviour towards him was diabolical, I really was a demon child. My dad can’t have children of his own and he has always treated us as his own and has gone without for us. He never deserved the stuff I put him through, yet when I apologised to him, his reply has stayed in my heart. “ You don’t ever need to apologise to me for that, you went through more as a toddler than you could ever put me through “ Dad you’re my hero, my inspiration and I love you forever x

      I took 2 years to realise how fortunate i was to have my stepdad in my life. he came when i was 8, he knew for a while before i wrote him a card that explained how i felt for him. he almost cried tears of joy. now when i leave for school he tells me: "learn something, you will only get this day once" and i tell him that i love him. he is my father and he will always mean more to me than my biological father.

    granger I'm 52 years old and every time i watch your podcast I'm literally choked up the whole time with feels. god for sure is speaking through you, i want to say your guest is on point no-one is perfect and it doesn't take prison to come to terms with being at rock bottom realizing that you're responsible for your own actions and reactions the point I'm making is HELP YOURSELF BE THERE FOR YOU !!!!! you will have so much support it'll make your journey worth every second. there's allot of people that want to help, but when you step up admit your failures and faults and start fixing it yourself the true help and friends come in gangs. anyway im babbling i love you, your show, your family all of it!!!! YEE YEE

    Glad i found this channel & this story which I can relate to. it's almost as if he was telling my story when it came to drinking, drugs, and prison. Bless this man for turning his life around and helping others along the way. Nowadays you see so many selfish & entitled young men & women that they're being set up for failure by society from the start. You can't disagree with any of them or they will shut you out. It's well worth it hearing about Brandon Puffer's journey. Thanks, Granger.

    No matter how deep we fall,how crimson red we may be, we come to the cross and lay it all down, there is nothing but the blood of Christ that makes us all whiter then wool ,never ever make the mistake that you have gone to far did so much wrong, that's self pride, Christ died and rose from the dead that we may live and not die, he said he takes all sin so trust, believe and live by faith through Jesus Christ, he is our refuge.,and nobody can snatch us out of his hand. God Bless you all, may the peace of the Lord be upon you,

      Do you know anything about opium? It's when I smoked it I didn't have any withdrawal symptoms and that's what I took away from it I think that the government took away all the green plants the seeded things God gave us for usage and enjoyment in the first book because they knew the consequences from it we're non-existent and they took and they put it in pill form and amped it up hell even the weeds f****** mutated, but do people withdrawal from opium? More people just assholes like the Chinese pulling people out of dens that were sitting there f****** after work and going numb from A hard Day's ass whooping and shooting him in the f****** streets for no goddamn reason?
