Ellyness ,

Excellent topics and delivery!

Laila does an excellent job putting together episodes with unique perspectives on things like social media & privacy issues, entrepreneurship, the shift in power dynamics over time (what has changed? What's the same?) and more. As podcasters ourselves, we are very impressed, too, by the production element of this podcast. It sounds awesome and is so well put together!

Excellent

What a well-produced, interesting, and informative new podcast! I just listened to the episode on deleting social media which was super well done (also 27 min felt like the perfect length for a podcast and my attention span) and I’m excited to listen to more! Laila the host has such a great, clear and soothing radio voice. Great job and keep me coming!!!
