Great Job Guys

I have absolutely no hesitation in giving this Podcast a 5 star rating.
Mike and Izabela Russell would make a fantastic case study on how to produce a Podcast that is
engaging, informative and most of all, Fun (with a capital “F”).

At the time of writing, the New Media Europe 2015 conference has just concluded and like the Podcast, was very well organised, engaging and fun - with a host of talented speakers passing on a wealth of knowledge.
Most attendees are now asking the same question “when’s the next one”.
Well done guys.

Outstanding conference (best ever)

I've been attending the live event and this podcast gave a pretty good overview of all the speakers and what they have to say. You can still attend the recordings of the event by purchasing a virtual ticket. Mike and Izabella are the nicest person I could have dreamed to organise this event. Thank you.
