@amyyogabizcoach ,

Thank god!

Finally this narrator is speaking at a pace that is bearable. Still a little OTT for an Australian audience, perhaps, but I’m not playing it at double time. Thanks, Keith!

Loved this podcast

Keith Morrison just has a way of keeping you hooked. I binged the first 4 episodes in one night and the other two the following night. Top notch, as always!
