Amazing

I love all of the animal stories especially The Wolves. I felt so happy that day that I listened to it and I share it with everyone I know. I love 8, 21 and 42. Another one that I liked was Sylvie and the Cats, but also Something Large and Wild, The Visitor, The Magpie of Heart Mountain, Frank and the Spelling Bee and Gobi. Such a great podcast.

You will fall in love with this podcast!

For someone who’s podcasts subscriptions are 98% true crime I was a little skeptical when my cousin sent me an episode of This is Love to listen to. It’s cheesy but it was love at first listen, Phoebe is a joy to listen to & your stories have brought me so many happy tears!

This really is love

I love this podcast! The stories are heartwarming and Phoebe is too. It’s the perfect antidote to all the bad news that seems to come in so frequently these days. Thank you a million times over xx xx
