Encouraging easy listen Podcast
Rani and Suraj deliver this podcast with such a light hearted approach, using the three little pigs story as a metaphor. I love the short, sharp delivery approach that they use, making it easy to fit in and accessible. It would also work for young kids and even children!
Very easy listening. Light hearted with wise insights on really relevant topics.
A fresh take on ‘wellbeing’!
Love listening to the fresh, clear take Rani and Suraj have on the subject of wellbeing. Comforting yet thought-provoking chats that give a sense of clarity to an area that’s been blown up to become almost intimidating. Thank you to you both for bringing peace and calm back to the subject of wellbeing!
