“Being one of the hosts was a wonderful experience. I was able to interview very talented, intelligent people and get closer to people I never thought I would. I became more confident with every episode and it was so fun to hear about things from different perspectives. Overall, taking part in this podcast and hearing from people, ranging from Deborah Ellis to Lord Puttnam, has inspired me and even sparked new hobbies, such as writing.”
