Love this so much
Even when I don’t know the guests on the podcast, each episode is utterly brilliant and gives great insights to the fact that we are all out in the world doing our best. Noone has things figured out and we are learning together. Plus Sofie is a comedian, which means they’re a genius host.
I love this podcast so much
It’s opened my eyes to so many things. The range of guests that Sofie has is incredible so there is a huge array of voices and perspectives to hear from. Sofie’s conversational style really cuts through the superficial to discuss topics that really matter in an unexpected depth.
There are some big names on the guest roster, but I’ve learned the most from the guests that had been previously unknown to me.
My review makes it sound serious, but there’s so much joy and fun to be found as well. I couldn’t be without this podcast.
Excellent podcast. Professional podcaster.
Sofie’s voice is calming and the content is wonderful. Sofie is a super professional podcaster and I love listening to Sofie interviewing the guests. LOVE!
