A wonderful time

A totally relatable and approachable show. Great topics and subjects that can hit close to anyone’s life. Fun hosts and great production. If you need some extra shows to add to your listening list, then /absolutely/ consider adding A Walk Within to the shortlist!! ❤️

Anoop is on to something special...

I just reviewed “A Walk Within” on my podcast Just One Listen and instantly became a fan. Anoop’s ability to tell stories and paint a mental visual with editing and story telling is second to none. Happy to drop a 5-star and subscribe to this soothing, well put-together show. Thank you Anoop!!

Communication is key

What a unique and fantastic way to explore a concept we certainly all struggle to do effectively. “Communication” is a must listen episode and this is most certainly a show you need to add to your rotation.
