Enjoyable & inspiring

This has been my podcast of choice for the last few weeks & have found every episode super interesting. It really gets my creative, entrepreneurial brain ticking! Now that I’ve got through them all, I’ll be keenly looking forward to the new one each week!

Fab content and guests. Truly awful production

I love the content of this podcast and the concept. The guests are really interesting and I love listening to their stories. BUT this is the worst podcast I’ve ever listened to in terms of production. Pointless stopping of the interview for summary voiceovers by the presenter that add nothing. Chat is faded out. The rhythm of the content is frequently disrupted by these inserts. The adverts are commercially produced rather than presenter read making them sound terrible and there’s too many of them. Pointless music at the end almost like the time is being drawn out. A simple interview with short, well placed, presenter read adverts would make this perfect and must-listen content.
