What a joy to listen to!

I came across this podcast in Sept and what a difference it made to my mental health. I had felt so low due to the restrictions on us. When listening I laughed so much it felt so good to feel happy. Jez and Adam have a unique relationship which works so well together. I do hope they do some more. I love the mixture of topics they cover. Great work!

What a rollercoaster

Haven’t done anything like this before but felt I had to comment on the latest episode (and season 1 finale) that I have just listened to. I’ve enjoyed immensely this podcast - I came across it in lockdown so missed the first 5 or 6 months (obviously caught up now) and it’s been brilliant. Having just listened to the last episode with Jez on his own, I felt I wanted to reach out to him and give him a virtual hug. It’s still unusual for men to talk about their feelings and what goes on with them but big love to you Jez - looking forward to season 2.
