    Adventures in Dating | 2

    Molly is ready to start dating in the real world. She’s balancing a life of extremes: harsh cancer treatments one moment, meeting with a new guy the next. Her first dates feel surprisingly like high school — including making out in the back seat of a car with “Toyota Guy.” And Nikki and Molly want to know what he thought about it.

Laughing out-loud

I am a 20 year old female and I adore this podcast. I listen while at work and find myself often laughing out-loud, this podcast helps my shift go by with a blink of an eye and a smile on my face! This gives me encouragement to find my inner slut ( and I don’t use that word in a bad way ). This has thought me we don’t need to wait till we are faced with a time line to start living!
Thank you xo

Love it

Absolutely love the podcast

Good Intentions?

I appreciate you both a lot, however I feel like I’m listening to an ad at times and start to naturally
tune out of it. Perhaps a bit over-edited and over-narrated for how real and vulnerable these stories are.
