So good!

I just wish there was a tiny pause at the end of the poem, before rushing into the credits. Otherwise this podcast is wonderful.

Five minutes that you’ll love

This podcast is great at any moment of the day. When I listen in the morning, it tends to set the tone of my day, where I try match my mood to the ease of Tracy’s voice. I sometimes listen to this in the evening while cooking with friends. It not only puts us in a relaxing mood but segues to wonderful conversation. Thank you.
