Just the best podcast

Honestly it’s been about 7 years since this was the first podcast I ever listened to and I’m yet to find another podcast that I enjoy as much as this one. I’ve tried a lot of educational and chatty podcasts but none of them hold my attention in the same way or are as relevant to my interests. Thanks for all the hours of content Helen and Caroline!

Super informative and super easy to listen to

Wow! What a great podcast! I’ve been listening for quite a while now and I don’t like to review too soon but I really needed to get behind this one, I’m such a fan I’m also a Patreon supporter!
The guests are great, the research into the topics is obvious and the topics are so varied, there’s something for everyone.
Thanks team!
Thanks also so so much for being so conscious
