Planetary Spirit – Testimonials
“I thoroughly enjoyed being interviewed by Jeff Ferrannini. He began his pre-interview with a prayer that opened both of us up to a heart space. In this way we transcended ordinary consciousness. Jeff has a deep understanding of life and the world of spirit himself so the interview went beyond being a superficial conversation to perhaps provide true wisdom for the listener. Jeff Ferrannini really does a great job.”
Sandra Ingerman, Licensed therapist, shamanic practitioner, author of “How to Thrive in Changing Times” and “Awakening to the Spirit World” (co-authored with Hank Wesselman)
"I appreciate you chosing passages from my book to read that reflected your sincere interest, and a no-nonsense, no-hype way of interviewing that draws attention to the true substance of what I have to say. It's clear to me you believe in what you do and use your radio forum to help your guests stretch their ideas."
--Mark Borax, Soul Level Astrologer and Author of Cosmic Weather Report: Guidance for Radically Changing Times
You know that Jeff's interview style is different from the moment he begins to speak. He's already become familiar with you before the interview begins. He's read your book and watched your videos on YouTube - and he asks real questions that real people would ask... In short, Jeff Ferrannini cares. And whether you're a guest on his show, or a member of his listening audience, his caring shows. And it translates into a truly compelling interview.
-- Dr. Eric Pearl, author of The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself

His pacing and direction allowed for ample time to elaborate and to provide context for my answers. He knows how to treat his guests with respect and cordiality, making me feel very much at home. It was a joy to be with him."

“When Jeff, the radio host, says, ‘My job is to bring you important work into the world,’ I brighten, relax, smile and put my heart in and enjoy our conversation. Not only has Jeff read the book we are discussing, but he makes it come alive for the listener by reading passages, probing deeper, seeking new insight. His intelligent questions guide our conversations in a comfortable flow; and his warmth invites stories which draw listeners to similarities in their own lives. Thanks Jeff for a memorable experience.”
Caron B. Goode, Ed. D., author, “Raising Intuitive Children” (co-authored with Tara Paterson)

Linda Anderson, co-author, “Angel Animals Book of Inspiration” and the “Angel Animals” series for dogs, cats and horses
“It is no accident Jeff Ferrannini’s radio show is called Planetary Spirit. After an hour with him, I now see that Jeff is a planetary spirit! The conversation was well, just that, a delightful conversation with a loving, wise friend. Jeff’s show lifts the planet and all of us on it a wee bit higher with each successive conversation.”
Janet Conner, Author, “Writing Down Your Soul”
“Jeff is the rare interviewer who truly listens. He’s in the moment and not looking to jump ahead to his next point. It was also delightful (and flattering) that he had obviously read my book! It would be an honor and a pleasure to do this show again.”
Victoria Moran, New York Times Bestselling author, “Living a Charmed Life”, “Creating a Charmed Life”, motivational & inspirational speaker
“Jeff Ferrannini is the kind of interviewer one usually only dreams of. He was incredibly clear, deep, thoughtful and sensitive to the issues and nuances of the subjects we discussed. I felt nurtured and encouraged throughout the conversation—and it was truly a conversation rather then the usual invasive probing that passes for interviews elsewhere. No one else can cover 4 books in one hour and do it justice like Jeff can and leave both guest and audience relaxed and filled.”
Penny Kelly, N.D., Researcher into Consciousness and author, “Consciousness and Energy, Vol. 1”, “The Elves of Lily Hill Farm”, “Robes”, “From Soil to Stomach”

“To be interviewed about one’s book by Jeff Ferrannini of Planetary Spirit radio is a pleasant and rewarding experience. Not only does he ask penetrating questions but you know he ahs read the book thoroughly and asked himself what would the author be pleased to talk about and how best can I bring that out of him or her. I felt honored as an author and listened to. I ended the interview feeling confident that the listener to Planetary Spirit radio might well be inspired enough to buy “Radical Forgiveness”, which was obviously, from my point of view, the object of the exercise.”

His depth of insight into the magical and mysterious realm of spirit and the multidimensional nature of our world brought forth questions of great magnitude.

His attention to details helps the listener better understand the heart of the story and makes listening to Jeff’s show a very rewarding experience. "

"Jeff Ferrannini's radio show Planetary Spirit is an important crossroad where members of the transformational community can gather and share wisdom and experience.

"The ideal interviewer, in my imagination, has a particular mix of qualities: the ability to reflect on the material being discussed with depth and sensitivity; the patience to move beyond sound bites into real discovery and exchange; the knack for framing questions that open doorways for the audience; the warmth of friendship, which brings out the best in any conversation; and finally, a willingness to challenge me to clarify ideas that seem contradictory or impractical. Jeff Ferrannini has all these qualities in spades, and it was a joy to spend an hour in his company, sharing heartfelt truths."
Philip Shepherd, Author, "New Self, New World - Recovering Our Senses in the 21st Century

Being a guest on Planetary Spirit with host Jeff Ferrannini was a true pleasure. Jeff had not only read our book, The Golden Motorcycle Gang, but captured the essence of why Jack Canfield and I had written this novel of transformation. It is clear that Jeff is a member of the Golden Motorcycle Gang and that his radio show is dedicated to helping people realize their higher destiny and purpose. Jack and I are grateful to Jeff for inviting us on his show and know that Planetary Spirit will continue to make an important contribution towards informing listeners of opportunities they have to improve their lives and those of others.
William Gladstone and Jack Canfield, co –authors of The Golden Motorcycle Gang.
Jeff just seems to do everything with such ease and delight. From our first contact, I could feel his open heart and connection to spirit. He embodies a childlike playfulness and the wisdom of the ancestors effortlessly, and his gifts make him both compelling to listen to, and to work with. I truly appreciate the time and energy he so clearly put into preparing for our interview. He brought up things that even I had forgot about! We had so much fun! Jeff’s authenticity and integrity put him into a league with the world’s greatest spiritual guides.
"Jeff's Planetary Spirit program was an experience I have seldom had with interviewers. He provided a beautiful understanding of my own work in an inspiring and charismatic way. I feel an interview is only as powerful as the interviewer who inspires it and Jeff provides magnificent inspiration."

What a wonderful experience to be a guest on Planetary Spirit. Your opening question showed you took the time to read my entire book all the way to the glossary, rare, and much appreciated. Your deeply insightful questions reflected a commitment to sharing new information with your listeners, also your open heart and mind. It was clear you were interested in our conversation. Boston is lucky to have you on the airwaves. I count myself blessed to have been a guest on your show.

Being with Jeff Ferannini is as delightful as dipping into a cool stream on a hot day. I’m deeply grateful for his deep listening and insightful questions. Unlike many media hosts who just touch lightly into the work of their guests, Jeff does his research and comes up with sincere questions from his heart. I truly appreciate being on the air with such a skillful and imaginative host. Thank you for the opportunity.
