Helped so much!!!
Thank you for this podcast.
I was in a terrible rut , being a chef for 19 years with no options to change careers. Listening to this podcast started to give me the power to talk and find options.
Now I work in an amazing job as key support worker and couldn’t be happier!
Kyran could talk about cement and I’d still listen, he has the most amazing voice. Great podcast! So wish he would do more.
Triple J are dumb dumbs
I stopped listening to Triple J when Kyran and Gen didn’t get the breakfast slot. Awesome little podcast, can’t wait to see what Kyran does next!
