I came to this podcast on a recommendation and only downloaded a couple of episodes to “test it out”. What a lovely podcast! I’ve been pleasantly surprised that I’ve become hooked on a topic that I previously avoided due to my nervousness of not being able to engage with the material in a meaningful way. Your style and flow make this podcast a wonderful addition to my weekly routine. Thank you!!

Great info
