Brilliant

After listening to a few I’d just like to say how wonderful they are. Very diverse, informative, emotional and most of all interesting. Thank you for doing them and long may they continue. 😊

Good discussions but too short

I enjoy listening to this podcast and find it both interesting and informative. The only thing I would say is I think they are too short in my opinion. The guests have a lot to say and share but they need more time in my opinion!!!
