What our listeners say


Found this podcast on social media and have listened to it ever since, the team is passionate about what they're doing which makes each episode easy listening.

I found this podcast just when I needed it, I was looking for my break and needed some inspiration. I fell down the back catalogue and I've never looked back. Thanks for what you do!


Jamie is exactly what you'd want in an interviewer. Laid back and friendly. Not only do I appreciate the core message of the podcast, I love the relaxed way it's relayed.
