Who runs the world?
I was searching for female led podcasts and came across this one, the contraceptive one is something I’m looking into myself right now after just having had a baby and not wanting anymore! Em is clear, friendly and seems approachable. Found the episode informative without overloading you. I’m now subscribed and looking forward to listening to the back catalogue!
Informative, funny and soothing
I've recently found Em on Instagram and obviously got obsessed with her content. She's extremely good at telling stories that are hilarious and informative. This podcast is exactly that. Plus, she has the most soothing voice ever, which is a total bonus!
A great listen for all!
I love Ems podcast - she covers such a range of topics and even if I’m not sure I’ll find a topic interesting she has a way of presenting it which keeps me enthralled! She is a fab interviewer and the quality of each episode is great. Highly recommend!
