  1. Hi Alex,

    I just remembered about the interview from the BL networking event. Thanks for making my first interview of this nature, actually quite enjoyable!

    Really enjoyed listening to the Levi Roots and Social Firms UK podcasts – plus I’d say keep the music, it’s a great idea!

    Natalie

  2. [...] Reggae sauce fame – but if you want to skip straight to me sharing my personal journey, tune into podcast no.64 starting at 14 [...]

    Glad you like the music Natalie – you’re one of a minority that includes me. Fortunately what I say goes, so the music stays ;)
