informative and funny

I’m a college student and I find this podcast super informative and useful. Dr. Blake is very entertaining. I like how the episodes have gotten a bit shorter and more digestible.

A possible ,

Lovely Host

Although Dr. Salge Blake is an expert in the field, she invites guests that make the podcast more interactive and easier to listen to rather than a lecture about the topics. I love when she asks the guest questions that she obviously knows the answer to, but she wants to create an enjoyable conversation rather than interrupting or correcting the guest to show her expertise. She does her podcasts with such class and professionalism, they are always enjoyable and informative. She’s humble and funny, that’s why I always keep listening!
