cant sleep without it ,

I loved it

I loved this, only thing that wasn’t easy listening was the constant gasping and response noises from the host into the microphone. Some of it could have been edited out as it became repetitive and I started to anticipate it and it killed some of the awesome story being told by the guest.
The ex police woman is a hero, I loved hearing her speak.

Few doubts

Good story but presented in a very contrived manner. “Oh, no!”, “Gasp!”, “What do you mean?” Not convinced that Brigid is always telling the truth, either.

Hi Brigid and Sarah, I have just finished listening to the podcast, it’s an incredible story. I’m am at lost for words to describe my anger at the way Brigid was treated but, I am in awe of her strength and resilience. Can wait to see the show on TV. Keep up the great work Sarah.
