  • Interesting, funny, relatable

    There are definitely guests you’ll love, some you won’t love so much. But that’s the beauty of having an open mind and if nothing else it will spark thinking. I find Sam a very soothing interviewer and the chats to be interesting, informative and open, and sometimes vulnerable and empowering. Well worth a regular listen!
