Fit a lot into a small time segment
I thought the hosts were able to fit a lot into a small time segment with out feeling rushed. I’m looking forward to the next podcast.
Love the content, but the ‘mmhmm’ repeated over and over during the guest’s answers distracted me from actually listening to what was being said. Other than that, it was great!
This has improved tremendously. Content is great and the interviews are so informative.
Great topics and helpful tips
Can’t wait for the next episode!
