A must-listen

First time listener from NZ and really delighted to find such a good podcast full of interest, sensitivity and wit. And of course dogs - and cats - et al. Recommend this podcast, it's full of charm. Thank you.

Not afraid to talk about the deep stuff

I enjoy the way Emily cuts to the chase in her interviews and really discusses some very personal topics with her guests. She has a direct style and the conversations are very good listening. It’s also fun to picture the places they’re walking through and the dogs they encounter on their routes! An excellent idea for a podcast.
