Customer ReviewsSee All
I love this podcast. As a first year, preschool teacher I need this to further understand how to work with children. My only critique of this podcast is that Cindy does interrupts Alison when she’s speaking. There was something that Alison said that found I intriguing and Cindy interrupted her. I was thinking “oh no, I wanted to her experience on that!” Other than that, great show!
The barking has got to go
I want to give this podcast 5 stars because the subject matter has been great so far, but the near constant barking of a very loud dog makes the entire experience extremely off putting. I can’t move past it and have to stop listening, I’m sorry.
Great topic, hard to hear
I started to listen to a podcast regarding covid19, but could not finish do to the extra noise. The background noise of birds and the dog was very distracting. What I did hear was really good.
