A lovely insight into the lives and inspirations of others

I found the interviews to be both charming and intriguing. Their light and casual nature makes them easy to listen to but the depth content discussed and openness of the interviewees urges you to keep listening! There's everything from a scientist who sings to an Irish author who has an uncanny celebrity look alike - highly entertaining. Can't wait to hear more!

Inspiring in insightful!
