Doing It! podcast review

Hi, I found this podcast when I originally was looking for podcast that doubt with relationships from a female identifying person’s perspective. I really enjoy the way you present this content and I’ve been A huge fan of both of your YouTube channel throughout the years. I really love the way you’re so open about the stuff that humans go through as a normal part of life. It’s really important that we have more representation of disability in the space. I love the diversity in the guests you have on the Podcasts as well as your ability to just be yourself throughout this journey. Thanks for everything you do and I highly recommend this podcast to anyone you just want information about how things work from a woman’s perspective. Thank you Hannah.

My favourite podcast!

I can’t praise it enough!! Such a great listen on my commute to work, it is quirky and funny and also super educational. I’ve been introduced to so many great people through this podcast and am now closely following a lot of the people that she interviews. I love things all sexual health and I have been watching hannah on YouTube for years. She is part of the reason I decided to become a sexual health educator and educate homeless youth in my city 💕
