Love it

After reading 'Getting There', a compendium of success stories from the world's best and brightest, I really wanted to get onto a decent podcast that would continue that theme for me. This has totally been the one! I can't wait to keep listening to the rest of the episodes =]

My new history/business love

A lovely brief description of the pitfalls and triumphs of notable business women and men that has a great twist of not telling you who the individual is until the end of the show. The first season focus on women was for me the best and my favourite. Thank you and keep it up
