Thanks for the podcast episode in spite of the flu! I do wish the "links" were actually clickable links, but it's a minor inconvenience.

This podcast is such a blessing and should not be missed by anyone. Cathy is such an amazing host and not only are her guests repeatedly inspiring, but her content, questions, insights, and suggestions always leave me with a bigger heart and a greater determination to strive for my goals and dreams. Definitely my favourite and one I always mention to family, friends and even new acquaintances.

the host should allow the speaker to finish her thoughts and sentences without interrupting. The guest should have preferrence for time. we can hear the host before and after the inteview. Some questions are simply a reiteration of the last comment. Please avoid the "Omg, oh god, soo cool, yeah," during conversation.
