The best!

My favourite podcast, the incredible guests on each episode have taught me so much and definitely changed my views on a lot of things (like Dyson hand dryers) . I’ve cried and laughed and it has made me so grateful for each day. Dylan and Angus have such a lighthearted yet insightful approach which ensures there’s never a dull moment to an episode. Keep it up!

Wow

What a brilliant, informative podcast. I thought I was “aware” but learn so much every time I listen. Love that the subject is always approached with Dylan’s trademark humour and positivity too.
