Girls to the front!

As a Xennial listener (IYKYK) Kim and Jen are the coolest older kids I looked up to, now all grown up. I love their witty, honest conversations and just being true role models of living in these times with curiosity while owning who you are. I especially appreciate their ability to navigate discourse on social media with grace, reminding us that language is fluid, context is important, and that we all contain multitudes. They truly embody “girls to the front” so women can hear and engage with each other and not get trampled. Love it so much!

Deep and frivolous

Each episode has deep, not so deep, and frivolous thoughts. The combination is rarely the same.

Love!

Thanks Jenn and Kim for doing this podcast. It is one of the things I look forward to every week. I love your honesty, vulnerability, curiosity and sense of humour about it all. Hope you enjoy doing it as much as I enjoy listening to it. Feel like I have 2 new friends I love!
