This podcast is a natural mood elevator. There's almost nothing as fun as listening to Jackie and her guests talk about things they love. Even if the subject doesn't interest me at the outset, it does by tne mid-point because all of the guests have such genuine affection for and knowledge of whatever is the subject at hand. If you'd asked me if I cared at all about Cricket prior to the podcast with cricket enthusiast, I'd have stared blankly and asked, "Cricket....like grasshoppers? That kind of cricket?"
I can't say I emerged with a great love of cricket, but I at least understand it and finally understood why it is that it is so popular around the world. Jackie's guests are always well-informed and comfortable talking on air. I first heard Jackie on the Gilmore Guys podcast, but she quickly become my top rated podcast. Always fun, frequently funny and for those of us that just love and are passionate about something deemed a little out there, it's a godsend.
