Interesting

Interesting episodes, with real life accounts and interviews. I sometimes struggle with podcasts not holding my interest, but this I’m hooked so paid for a subscription something I never normally do with podcasts.

Great listening ! NuNu

Horrible model

Good series, and interesting story. Horrible model. Didn’t realise I had to subscribe. Listen to half the episodes and then they force you to subscribe for the rest. Terrible. Aren’t the incessant adverts enough? I realise you have to run a business I just think others do it less sneakily and intrusively.
