Beat podcast

I listen to your podcast since a couple month now,
I’m not gonna lie, this is number one in my list. Why? Not just because I’m an introvert myself and that I can relate to everything you say about introverts, but for the energy, the dynamic you two have.
You host a show on a very specific topic, with a pinch of humour, just enough to be delightful.
So yeah, thank you both and (please) keep going your great work!
All the best
