Genuine balanced discussion

Peta has a great interview style and a warm way of and asking interesting and difficult questions.
I enjoy all the interviews I have listened to so far especially Desney King . Listening to 2 compassionate, intelligent women with whom I resonate brings me great comfort and provides much thought. Thanks Peta 😊

Desney King ,

Peta’s a great interviewer

What a delightful experience - being interviewed by Peta Hooke for The I Can’t Stand Podcast.
Not only is she professional and warm; Peta has a way of getting to the heart of what’s important, and what listeners really want to hear.
She certainly led me to open up about things I rarely discuss.
Wonderful!

Informed and Real
