-helps me to do more than I thought possible-

Rosemary Orchard and David Sparks have an easy style but give so much useful info I literally can't get everything out of all the sharing they do with just one listen - this may be the most useful podcast I've found!

Superb content mixed with average performance

I have been a big fan of David Sparks for so many years. This podcast has an amazing content. But I like solid performance and speech and dislike stammering. My only advice is to significantly reduce the number of “you knows” that both say, in particular Rosemary. She has 900+ shortcuts. I think the number of “you knows” per podcast are very close.

Great Podcast!

As we move towards more home automated devices and more ways to control them, this podcast is a great resource! In particular, as we begin to explore Siri Shortcuts, they are providing great examples of how to streamline work flows and automation. Keep up the great work!
