Great new show

There are quite a lot of podcasts dealing with elt out there already but this one is a shining new star among them. Great start with inclusion. I learned a lot and am looking forward to more.

Inspirational

Without visual aids, it’s often difficult to grab and maintain the audience attention, while conveying a clear and informative message effectively - ELT CPD achieved just that.

The topics are current and engaging. The host is well prepared and her questions are relevant and on point. Her guests are knowledgeable and ‘easy on the ear’. Their answers are linear and to the point, supported by personal anecdotes.

I’m really impressed and I look forward to the next episode!

An excellent start!

A really thought-provoking and interesting first episode. Love how this new ELT podcast is beginning with inclusion and diversity. It’s easy to listen to, and the first guest was extremely knowledgable and easy on the ear. Clear to see the presenter has done her homework before guests come on. Looking forward to more!
