Beyond amazing

I love everything about this podcast. I love the context of each episode, no subject off the table. Each episode is interesting, relevant and insightful. I love hearing what difference people experience behind closed doors. I love that there’s so much that I can relate to, and lots that I learn from others stories that are new and from different points of view. I love that it’s non-judgemental and open minded. THANK YOU! Can’t wait for season 5!!

You guys are my best friend 🤗

I love your podcast and how real and non-judgmental everything is that you talk about. I feel so liberated and not alone now after listening to so many things that had been on my mind for a long time. Every time I listen I feel like I’m getting a warm supportive hug from someone like a mum or a best friend and I’m so glad that some of these topics are finally getting talked about from all perspectives. Please please please keep producing this podcast 💛 xx
