Alice_the_sloth ,

I learn so much from this podcast!

This podcast is great. I feel a bit out of my depth with a lot of the issues discussed in this podcast, but Leena presents it in such an accessible way that I learn a lot from every episode.

Really important podcast to listen to.

Thanks for making it!

Little+darling=me ,

❤️❤️❤️

I love it for the topics you talk about and the way in which you discuss them.

Miss Hufflepuff ,

I don’t agree with every point but I learn every time ...

Such a wonderful concept and Leena is a fantastic host. She tackles taboo topics in a kind, accessible, and funny way. I laugh every episode. Can’t wait for more.
