So deep and potent

I’ve just listened to my very first whiskey and work podcast (the april 2024 one with Cathy Heller) and it was so good I had to RUN and leave this five start review. I love how deep the conversation was and I took so many notes.

I also recently saw Kelsey speak at an in person event so I know the rest of these episodes will be just as deep, empathetic, and magical
