TREE LS ,

A great listen

My favourite thing about this podcast is that listening never feels like a chore, it starts light-hearted & friendly but by the end you realise you’ve learnt something new. It gives time & space for a mental adventure, as well as prompting ideas for your next physical one too!

Fantastic podcast!

I absolutely love this! It’s really helping to kick me out of my unadventurous slump and I bought the workbook too. The bite sized podcasts are perfect, too. Thank you Alistair!
