Human Radio is Friggin' Brilliant!
People have stories to be told and Allen Featherstone is bringing so many of there amazing journeys to us via this excellent podcast. The Featherstone is my go to travel companion as I've been on the road a lot these past couple of months. Allen is funny and engaging, his podcasts feel more like you're part of the conversation as the quiet listener at the table rather than listening to an interview. :)
I love listening to these podcasts!
They are funny, smart, confirming and real! Keep up raw conversations Allen.
Once again Allen, well done! I really enjoyed this episode! You and Nikki are made me laugh! Love it.
