Inspires introspection and sparks a conversation
Make New Friends nails the key aspects of all great podcasts: likeable hosts, natural flowing conversation, crisp production, etc. On top of that, it inspires you to throw a healthy dose of thought behind a part of everyday life which we perhaps take for granted a lot of the time.

The podcast explores dynamics which we could all benefit from being more mindful of!
