This little find during lockdown has proven to be such a little saving grace. The energy with which Eva conducts the interview, the positive spirits that the guests/artists imbibe have been such a crucial part of my lockdown journey - thank you so much.
I loved some little takeaways from Sukhvinder Singh, the happy vibe and need for gratitude from Shaan, the cross borders experience from Jonita...and so much more. I’ve loved the podcasts so much, I’ve shared them with so many friends and family.
Keep them coming ...
