Incredible value!

Thank you for this great podcast. So much valuable info.

Wow.

Wow. What can I say other than inspiring, informative, and a bit cheeky. Ben is a brilliant podcast host who clearly knows his stuff and the exuberance he brings to his show makes a rather boring topic fun to listen to. Would definitely recommend!
