PK Podcast: Interviews, Discussions, Reviews, Advice, Experience

Welcome to the Paul Kirtley podcast.

My podcasts involve interviews and conversations as well as information which would be difficult to share in another format.

In this sense my podcasts add another dimension to my blog.

The aim is to share information, knowledge and experience as well as to entertain.
