Needs improvement

Meh, found the podcast’s topics and interactions with guests to be a bit boring. Been a traveling therapist for 7+ years and was hoping to get more from tuning in.

This is such a great resource for anyone who is contemplating travel therapy. Who better to get answers from than real travel therapists?!
