    Ella Podmore exudes confidence and boldness through her transparency. It's inspiring to listen to a women who is so comfortable in her own skin, despite the occasional self-doubt and fear in standing-up for herself in a very male-dominated industry. What's most inspiring is that she speaks up anyway, with an attitude of knowing that she has nothing to lose and everything to gain!

A very good listen

I found this podcast because I’ve enjoyed Dr. Somara’s tv appearances on some of the shows I watch on science channel in the USA. The Doctor has a very good way of explaining the subject matter. This podcast Dr Somara is a great interviewer and creates a very good interaction with the person she is interviewing.

Love this mini mentoring form

I am absolutely in love with this method to reach out to important women, despite their own credentials, to speak of the issues that are so vital to continue to be spoken about. I feel so good listening at my patio, the beach...anywhere really !! I’m an undergrad currently in BME and this means the world!
