Lockdown with Louis Theroux

These conversations are so engaging; interesting but not too intense,
Masterful interviewing, appears effortless.

Mind blowing

Wow firstly I have to say I love Rose she is an amazing woman who is a fantastic role model for all women, standing up for women’s rights at the sacrifice of your life, career and financial future takes a special quality that not all people share. Stay strong and keep them honest my thoughts and prayers are with you. Louis, a fantastic interview which was probing yet not intrusive to the point of annoying I’m hooked and can’t wait for part 2 of Rose’s story.
