Great stories

Host talks too fast, very hard to listen and follow and I want to listen to these positive stories ! Please Kelsie, I’m trying to hear and follow these positive podcasts, but I feel more like I’m at an auction. My mind has to race to keep up with what you’re saying. I listen often while I’m doing housework, etc which makes it even more difficult when I’m doing things while listening.
