Brilliant

I adore this podcast and have for a long time. So full of inspiring women. Meg’s interview style is positive and nurturing, but probing enough to create really interesting conversations.

I especially love the new bookclub episodes. I’ve read Playing Big by Tara Mohr many times, but I’m getting so much more out of it by listening to Meg and Katie discuss each chapter. Highly recommended.

Love this podcast

Honest, funny and interesting. I’ve been listening for a couple of years and always seem to listen to what I need to hear. Meg asks great and intriguing questions that creates thoughtful, irreverent and funny discussions on all things creativity.

Caroline Jestaz ,

I could listen to the Couragemakers Podcast all day long!

I have to stop and ration myself, otherwise I would spend my days listening to Meg's many wonderful interviews! I've also downloaded her pep talks, which I listen to when my motivation is low. I highly recommend The Couragemakers Podcast. It's inspiring and good for the soul.
