Nicole’s podcasting journey has been one of highs and lows, challenges and triumphs, and most of all of self-discovery and a love of the medium of podcasting and what it’s done for her.

‘I’m becoming this podcast-obsessed woman …I’m driving and I’m listening, I’m walking and I’m listening and I’m doing my clothes and I’m listening.  Every moment I could get I started listening to podcasts.’
