Jo is the best!

Jo is the friend you’d want to meet in the pub, coffee shop, hug in a pre and post covid world. She is real, funny, honest and just gets it. I’ve been a long time listener and never written a review I am ashamed to say. Her podcasts are just great. Listen and you won’t regret it. Thanks for the hard work my friend! x
