Memyeeeee ,

I just love the Bakery Bears!

I’m already a big fan of The Bakery Bears Show on YouTube and I’m really enjoying working my way through the podcast episodes.

Hippy Chick Flowerhead ,

You helped me get out there again!

During lockdown my anxiety hit a high - I was fine at home, but not happy about going out anywhere. One day in late May I looked up your lovely radio show and it inspired me to get out for a walk every day. I plugged you in and off I went, timing my walks to the length of your shows. I found your gentle chatter calming, and you were the perfect company. I still get out for an stroll, nearly every day - just off now with show 24 for company. Thank you 😊

Lalajamo ,

Episodes 1-4

I’m a bit late to the party but I’ve really enjoyed listening to the first 4 episodes back to back this morning whilst being able to carry on working. Mr and Mrs Bakery Bear you are inspirational! Thank you for sharing such a huge journey.
Debbie
