Top podcast!

This podcast is professional and hugely informative, jam packed with nuggets of wisdom and great stories that illustrate points in a way that is relatable and compelling. But what I love almost as much as the content? Kara’s delivery. She talks quickly (which I appreciate - it’s energising), clearly, and with warmth and passion for her topic.
