I love every episode for a different reason: the topic, the content, the guest. I enjoy them all for the same reason: the conversation between Mary Payne and her guests is always so fluid and organic. It feels like I’m listening to life long friends chatting. So many of my now favorite podcasts are ones I heard about on this podcast.
