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.

I just want to say, this is so much of what I needed in my life.. it's always a self doubt battle for me, so many people have told me... oh you can't make money at that, or it's a flooded market, keep dreaming... this podcast gives me the courage to keep dreaming.. thank you so much for doing this, each episode I've listed to have been so much more than just inspiring.. I don't think I would even consider continuously trying at this point if I hadn't ran across this podcast.. I cannot thank you enough - you all are amazing, please keep inspiring us all with this amazing content.

I just want to thank you so much for this podcast. I just downloaded this app. And this is the very first podcast I have listened to. I just want to thank you so much for everything that you had said. Prior to this, I was bawling my eyes out for hours just frustrated with myself and just having one of those days where I hate myself and my life. Just so stress with exams and overthinking my capabilities. But after listening to you I feel so much better and I have a sense of hope
