Educational, interesting and entertaining

Thank you Dr West I love listening to your podcasts. You tackle subjects that we shy away from. So interesting and such important conversations.

Interesting, informative and different!

This podcast introduces me to ideas and people that I would never otherwise come across and that’s exactly what a good podcast should do. A great listen and the host really knows her stuff. Dr West is clearly more than just a ‘sexpert’!

SJSM ,

Smart, Brave and Totally Unmissable

Caroline has the conversations that most of us need to have but don’t know how to start. I love how this podcast gives me access to super smart people who can teach me new things and I don’t even have to leave my house!
