Great Pod

A great addition to my podcast list

If you haven’t already give it a try - it’s worth it

This has quickly become one of my favourite and must listen to podcasts of the week.

Both presenters are so knowledgeable, likeable and definitely at the top of their game.

Some great guests interviewed and topics covered so far and I’m really looking forward to listening to what comes up in future episodes.
