Riveting

I wasn’t sure I’d like this podcast but it’s become one of my all time favourites. John was such an interesting and intriguing guy. I could listen to him all day. So many emotions covered but now I’m finished it I just feel a bit sad for the whole situation

Diamond in the rough!

Did not expect to like this as much as I did. Makes you think about the impact one life has on many others!
I loved that I began listening to this expecting one thing and it completely twists into something more in-depth, complex and thoroughly enjoyable!
