Earnest, considered conversation
I have adored absolutely every episode of Sisteria, but listening to the way Veronica Sullivan and Stephanie Van Schilt lift each other up so effortlessly and enthusiastically in Veronica's farewell episode really did it for me. It completely captured the essence of the series, I think. I cannot wait for the third season, and am fanging for an Ellena Savage interview...
thank the goddess for this show
THANK YOU for bringing so many INCREDIBLE GNB and women into my life. Steph and Ronny do such a fantastic job in researching, selecting and interviewing their guests. The care and love that is put into this show is evident. Thanks so much.
Love it already
Just listened to the amazing Gemma Flack episode, can’t wait to hear more. So glad I found this podcast 💖 keep it up!!
