I am totally addicted to this podcast, which often has me giggling on my commute and attracting strange looks! Framing the episodes as a dialogue is a brilliant way to keep things moving whilst allowing a cut and thrust dynamic between the two speakers. And the topics are seriously dealt with but also quite accessible and timely. Thank you and keep them coming!
