It’s like having Natasha Negovanlis and all her awesome friends at a Victorian dinner with assigned seating that no one follows but it’s okay because you’re all just having incredibly deep discussions. Xoxo
Natasha has such a peaceful voice and is totally charming in her chats. It’s a lovely podcast and a great listen on a walk at the end of the day.
Perfect Companion for walks
I have been listening to this podcast on my evening walks, the hour long episodes not only help me time my walks, they also make walking much more interesting. I like solo walks, and listening to this feels like I have 2 friends walking with me (but only in my ears and I only need to listen). The episodes just keep getting better, with different topics being brought up every other week. I love learning new things, and this podcast definitely exposed me to conversations I might never come across in my country. Natasha also has a beautiful and warm voice which will definitely bring pleasure to your ears. I highly recommend whoever is reading this to give this podcast a try!
