I love this - energy boost of the day.

I started listening to Amy's podcast a few weeks ago - since I was fed up with listening to the same radio station each day when I'm in traffic to work. All the guests are inspiring, even if they have completely different interests than me, I still find pieces of advice I can take a long. Amy does a great job, and the best thing about this podcast: I started loving traffic. Just sitting in my car, listening to these people, makes me calm and inspired. So ready to take on the day. Keep up the good work, Amy!
