Excellent informative and easy to listen to

I qualified in 1999 and I find the discussion and content immensely interesting and informative. If this had been around when I first qualified I would have been so happy

Brilliantly thoughtful and thought-provoking

I’m currently applying to train as a social worker, following 8 years in the humanitarian sector. The conversations in these podcast are extremely validating for the thoughts and conflicts I’ve encountered in my work so far, with extremely thoughtful ways of approaching the complexity that comes with any work that involves people and social factors. Thank you!
