The #1 podcast

This is my favourite podcast and it just gets better. It is so refreshing and liberating to hear taboo topics talked about so sincerely and intelligently without judgement.

Yumi is an excellent presenter. And whoever produces this show deserves a medal. Yumi - you should get some more media work girl you are crazy good!

Disappointing

I was so excited when this podcast came back for another season, only to be let down by then resharing old episodes instead of putting out fresh, new content. It’s very disappointing.
