Can’t listen to this around the kids because of the language

I can’t listen to this book around my kids because of the language. Every so often they drop the F word and for no real reason. Deleting. Sad because it is something I would have liked

Great show

Great variety of guests make this a fab series to listen to. I didn't know anything about any of the guests so I loved it - every day is a school day ! The host is funny - he laughs with them, at them, calls them out, shows genuine emotions to their stories and generally gets a decent interview from them.

A fascinating personality probe of change makers.

Loved the probing questions to find out what makes these people tick. The countdown quiz was really an interesting tool to see the person behind the success. So many lessons to learn about how to develop successful traits and I'm just in awe of the numerous problems these people have solved and the impact their lives have had on the world!
