Stuck For Ideas
Gosh what a little gem finding these podcasts by Stuck for ideas.
The interviews are slick and professional, the conversations just keep flowing between interviewers and interviewees. They are fascinating and so easy to listen too. The topics range widely.
Especially loved the interview with Huna, what incredible ladies Bella and Ffion are .
Well done Alice and Erin, think you’re brilliant, creative and super professional in this field. ( lovely to see two young women in these roles too)
Looking forward to listening to more podcasts
