Amazing

I absolutely love this podcast...Jodie keeps it real and delves deep with awesome guests!!!

Cait Wotherspoon ,

Every woman should hear this podcast

This is one of the most informative and comprehensive podcasts specifically for women I’ve ever listened to.

I can relate to every episode. Jodie’s guests are women who are world leaders in their field. Each episode is filled with new, groundbreaking information. Jodie asks well thought out questions and delves deep into issues that are particularly female. Each episode has loads of links to resources and book titles that are helpful in everyday life.

I encourage woman all over the world to binge the episodes so far, you will grow and know that you matter and you are enough. You’ll learn so much.

I look forward to new episodes being released. Thanks Jodie for giving woman of every size a voice.
