Really interesting, fun and easy to listen to.
It’s been wonderfully refreshing listening to each episode and hearing Jackie and Louise talk about important issues with passionate guests. The podcast feels comfortable and inclusive and the general atmosphere is very enjoyable. I’ve recently started my Keto journey and the Fabulously Keto podcast has been a great help. There’s a great balance between banter and discussing serious matters such as Covid-19, healthy living and many more. In addition, it’s a refreshing switch up from many other Keto podcasts and I can honestly say I learn something new every time I listen. Can’t wait for the next episode!
I find the the content and the guests to be very thorough and relatable . The only problem with this podcast is the awkward silences between the guests and presenters. Sometimes the guest will say something really powerful but the presenters don’t respond in an enthusiastic manner and it all becomes a bit awkward.
