Just started listening to a new episode but stopped once I heard the ad for Exxon. We need to get off fossil fuels, and the industry has spent decades lobbying to keep information from the public. I'm unsubscribing.

Not being a fan of "How to..." books i was initially sceptical about this show. But really it is very good. I love that it in involves talking with regular people about their problem and then having a clear speaking expert in to "work the problem". Very positive.

 Feb 2, 2021
I often find myself really thinking through the thoughtful advice this podcast covers - even if it isn't an issue or skill I want to have!


You’ve got questions. Together, we get answers. We all need advice, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to turn. Each week, Courtney Martin and Carvell Wallace bring a listener on to the show to solve their toughest problems with the help of world-class experts. It’s free therapy, and you’re invited.
