Always so interesting I end up listening twice!

I love this podcast. I often find myself listening to the same interview a 2nd time

A must listen for aesthete’s everywhere

Who’d have imagined that real-estate podcasts would be so didactic and absorbing. The curation of guests and their life stories, intelligently teased-out of them by host Matt Gibberd are always fascinating and often quite moving. I love this show.
