The BEST podcast

Love love LOVE this podcast! There is something really valuable in each and every episode! Something to think about/take away…and a good bit of humour! All episodes are very unique and a range of different personal stories but 100% something to relate to in every single one 💜

Emmielou poppy ,

Listen with an objective ear

I have enjoyed a few episodes at a surface level. She certainly gets some interesting guests. I found some of her perspectives quite concerning for a therapist, so this would not be a regular listen for me. Her empathy for her guests seems greater than her responsibility to the listener.

Fantastic New Podcast
