Insightful and Interesting

I was hooked after the first episode! Matilda is well spoken and has a lovely voice - she is also great at keeping the conversations flowing smoothly. The guests all have interesting stories and I’m always left wanting to hear more about their lives. I hope more episodes are released :)

First Episode Review

Lovely voice. Good interviewer, based on Episode 1; if she expands subject matter, this could be the posh female version of Bill Simmons or Joe Rogan.
