Description

We help you learn lots of topics!

The aim: To have a conversation with anyone about anything.


This can be a really useful skill to have and something you can use in all aspects of your day to day life. Be that at the pub with friends, during a job interview, or speaking with your boss at work.


In this podcast we will cover a wide range of topics. We will hopefully introduce you to new topics, books or concepts that we think will be useful to learn.


So you know we are not experts in the subjects we cover, we have one week to read and research the topic.

This is then a summary of the research and reading we have done.


We do the hard work, then share what we think is the most useful information for you to know!


Once you have listened we would love to hear your thoughts or any feedback.
