With the popular demands, we decided to make a little reel to share the joy of having this lady on our podcast🥰

we welcomed Anita Young MBE to record an in conversation episode ✨

What a fun we had!! Her knowledge and experience of British ballet along with her infectious sense of humor…. we ended up spending so much time just talking and singing and everything else😆

Thank you so much Anita for spending time with us and share your experience and vitality!

Did you enjoy our last episode???

Do you remember @akikohobson talking about how she cannot talk English while she plays piano….?

Here is an evidence!

While @mattjg1711 and @chrishobson86 are casually having conversations with Joshua, @akikohobson is struggling….! Whenever she tries to talk, her playing goes bad…!😂

Let us know if anybody has the same experience or can explain what’s going on in Akiko’s brain!

We are looking forward to hearing from you!!! 😁
