First podcast and what a calming experience
So after a 12 hour work day being up since half past 5 and having to put on a happy face the podcast with Dawn French and Ferne was a beautiful way to just wind down in a dark room, listen to someone’s interesting endeavours and smile with them as they chat through life. It is nice to listen about the general day to day life of someone so well know talking about every day feels and emotions and contextualising things in such a eloquent and wonderful manner. I feel relaxed and found it a enjoying piece of calm and me time so thankyou
I can’t believe this podcast has only come out today. It feels like an old friend is talking to you and it just absolutely warmed my heart. It is just wonderful to hear such open and kind conversation, this is everything that I’ve needed to listen to. I’m so calm now.
Gratitude for the latest episode with Fearne and Russell
Fantastic use of this platform and their public appeal to expand the notion of, and promote a leaning toward a more spiritual and altruistic path and the part techniques, disciplines and methods can play in the process.
Lives touched and bettered by kind and wise words at every stream or download I’m sure.
Russell won’t read this ,and Fearne needn’t to know what a wonderful donation this and the other conversations in these series are to the many.
Thanks to you both and the other contributors in any case .
