    Hi Kate and Mike (and team!)
    I am really enjoying your podcasts and have caught up with all of them now while walking the dog. They really hold my attention. i have learnt lots of good stuff. For the record, in response to your comments today about wanting a sponsor, one of the things I appreciate about your show is that you don’t have sponsors. I have unsubscribed from a few podcasts with sponsors because they really turn me off. I tune out and then miss some of the content. I also hate the feel of being sold something so become less interested in the content because it feels less genuine somehow. I also look forward to the podcasts when your kids are teenagers!!! (Which is where I am at). Soooo looking forward to the one where you talk about them doing chores!! Mine loved taking things to the trash etc as toddlers but now with screens and homework etc. they aren’t very keen to do their share!! Thanks x

      Thanks so much for your feedback Kate. This is super helpful! And you’ve got 11.5 years to wait for us to have teenagers. I hope you’re patient :)
