"Oh my god what a brilliant podcast. I'm so I'm just still tingling from the whole thing. Your interview questions were so right on and Molly holy cow so articulate. I'm gonna listen to it again because there's so much wisdom in there and your ability to pull it out and support her. It was just fabulous. Daniel I loved the editing, the segue, the music in between it really felt professional. You provide a beautiful atmosphere of safety and exploration. It's absolutely gorgeous . I will go on to leave a review. Congratulations it's beautiful and thank you very much.”
