TessFB ,

High yield +++

Wonderful podcast, the most high yield study one can do whilst out on a run/cooking dinner/taking notes.
Thanks to all the brave candidates.

Lahiru, so appreciative of what you do! Would love it if some of your other videos from YouTube were also available to listen to as podcast episodes... makes it so much easier to stay healthy/active and not waste time!
