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.
