A great podcast for anyone interested in communications!

I recently discovered this podcast and resonated with a lot of the insights shared by Mubashira and her guests!

As a woman of colour and newcomer to the communications industry, diversity and inclusion have always been important to me. Thank you for creating a space to discuss these topics!
