Sabrina Osso review of the Going North Podcast

It was a pleasure to be interviewed by Dom Brightmon, on his easygoing and expressive podcast, Going North. We had an excellent conversation about the origins of Osso Safe which are rooted in dance, our children’s book, Home Safe Home For You and Me, and how our Osso Safe Certifications for properties are paving the way for respectful homes. Dom asked wonderful questions which created great chemistry between host and guest. Dom, thank you for being a wonderful host !

Inspired and Dynamic

This host brings all the energy, honestly. I love listening, because the conversations are fascinating, the human beings are just so inspired, and it gives a lift to my step. It reminds me that we’re all on a journey, and I love being reminded that there are so many human beings in this world doing good things.

Lessons with a Good dose of Humor!

Dom is such an engaging host, he makes everyone feel at ease, has a great sense of humor, and is an overall great conversationalist. A wide range of topics make it a show to come back to again and again.
