Great

This is a wonderful podcast. Well-written, compelling. I love hearing this story. I just can’t figure out the logic behind the bra ads in every episode. Is that really the target audience here?

Captivating

I’m a little late to the whole podcast obsession. Mogul made it worth the wait! Compliments to the team - definitely worth listening to!
