AleesaaListens ,

Simply lovely

My favourite podcast for calming down and relaxing at the moment. Finnley and Ollie are literally just like that friend couple that you can listen to for hours without realising that you’ve started staring at them creepily in your obsession...
Thanks for providing that little bit of cuteness and niceness in my week, guys!

Ps: Tova needs to speak up too haha

Cosy, Cute and Fun!

Love the podcast! The mix of topics and relaxed and funny style makes it such a great listen. It’s like a tea break with friends. I can’t wait for the next episode ☺️

Rheannon O ,

Like being in the pub with pals!

Love this podcast, not only for the content but also because it’s like sitting having a drink with friends! Especially if you’re also freelance, it’s nice listening to relatable conversation while you work. Look forward to more episodes! ✨
