Customer Reviews

Dani N 💗 ,

Love the channel!!

I first heard these girls on KIIS and was so upset when they weren’t on anymore so I am so glad they are continuing with the podchannel. Love the conversations, I listen every morning on my way to work and makes my morning commute better! Keep up the amazing work!

Amazing talking all the things

My sister recommended these lovely ladies to me.
I can not thank these girls enough for the laughs and the tears they have given me.
The different topics and how true they are to themselves I love. They are like a friend at exactly the right moment you need them. I have recently signed up to VIP, I mean look I get a lot from these girls and what’s one less glass of wine a week to ensure we keep these girls going!
I 100% recommend subscribing to the TG.
