Much needed me time!

A great listen when you need a little break from the daily struggles of working from home. Love all the guests especially Mel C!

You’re back!

Been waiting for my next dose - and what a great one to rerun with.
Loving energy and honesty of all guests. Hearing the crying in hotel rooms on work trips...so familiar! Money helps and Vegas and yachts sound AMAZE but really we have to remember it’s the smaller moments (sometimes in Nando’s)with our friends and fam that we really cherish.
