Well worth a listen!

I’ve listened to a number of episodes of this podcast all of which have been interesting and entertaining. Today the Rob Carlton edition came up in my playlist. I must confess I couldn’t picture who he was, but sometimes it’s great to hear someone talk and not have any preconceptions. Well, this episode was just magic. So honest and thoughtful and the story around Rob’s most treasured possession moved me to tears. As Molly Meldrum would say, “do yourself a favour” and check it out.

Wonderful - wish it were a daily podcast!

Such a wonderful podcast. Nigel is deft at bringing out his guests very interesting personal stories, with great respect, empathy and humility. I love the quality of the recording. It feels intimate, like I am in the same space. Would love to hear an interview with Dr Joanne Chory, who is leading the charge to save our planet from warming through her research in genetically modifying plants to take up more carbon. As she suffers from Parkisons time is of the essence in many ways.
