Content vs Sound quality

The content of this podcast is great! The quality of the sound is not great, but if you can look past that I highly recommend!

Amazing information and insight into attachment

This is such an informative podcast full of amazing information from a variety of different clinicians, teachers etc... The host is amazing and facilitates the interviews so well!

Needs work

Really tough podcast to take seriously. The host’s rising intonation at the end of each sentence makes every statement sound like a question. When I tune in to hear professionals speak, I expect them to talk like adults.
