Love it

I absolutely love this podcast. Not only is it informative, funny and inspirational. it's delivered by someone who's "been there an done it" not someone who just talks theories. To that end, it's everything a Podcast should be.

I don't normally leave reviews online but having just listened to episode #35 for the 3rd time (yes, really) I have to say it's the best podcasts interview I've ever heard. Give it a listen, I doubt you'll be disapointed.
