A privilege to listen to these conversations

Really enjoying the style of these podcasts, almost confessional, allowing the listener to feel they’re listening in to a chat between friends. As a passionate supporter of small and local businesses the hyper local content is engaging and addictive. Can’t wait for the next episode!
