Incredible podcast

A podcast everyone needs to listen to.

Fantastic podcast

Neroli does an incredible job and look up to what she’s achieved. Not only her passion should be recognised, she has fantastic knowledge in-depth discussions with who she chats with.

Love her honesty and raw emotion with these podcasts 🎧

Howie Stinks ,

Grubby

It takes a pretty grubby and desperate interviewer to allow this pathological liar a platform to spit his mistruths. All in order for Neroli to get herself a cheap headline. It’s a real shame
