Sabine 27 ,

So much content, but girl slowww it down

This podcast is articulate, intelligent and thoughtful. A necessary addition to the library of self help podcasts.

The host has a good voice, which is important as a listener, however, please consider slowing way down; between thoughts; at the end of a sentence, etc.

Impact is made when a listener can absorb the complex and challenging subject matter.
