Instantly in my top ten!

I was introduced to this podcast by 99pi and immediately knew it was for me. If one turns up in my feed I definitely listen to it first. It is well researched, focused yet wide-ranging, and feels female-driven - which I love. Though it’s absolutely a podcast for all genders. Highly recommended!

Good first episode!!

If the rest are as good then this could become a favourite podcast of mine! Has a similar vibe to 99% Invisible or maybe even Reply All

Slow down!

Very much enjoying the content and would give a higher rating if only the narrator would not talk so fast. Mostly ok, then she gets carried away and speeds through. .
Interesting concept though. Subjects covered that I’d never consider otherwise
