Like, I dunno...

Hi guys - I am loving the podcast - thoughtful, intelligent, funny conversation. One thing though - you need to stop saying 'like' and 'i dunno' every sentence. It's, like, really off putting, I dunno...

Lovely

Lively, informed and intelligent chat about potentially sensitive issues. Could have happily gone on listening much longer!

Life affirming

It's like sitting in the same room, listening to some lovely people having an interesting conversation. Very life affirming. Looking forward to more.
