Mclaugs ,

Highly informative!!

I actually love Shalaine’s podcasts because I find them highly informative without all the technical jargon and confusing terminology. The important information is in there but her delivery is very natural. It’s like having a comfortable conversation with a trusted friend who really knows what they’re talking about. Very personable. Keep up the great work Shalaine!!
