The best energetic gals!

I love listening to Rival and Queen! It’s so apparent through their conversations that they have such a special and lively friendship. Thursday’s are the best days clearly-new episode day! Highly recommend especially if you want to learn lots and laugh along like you’re hanging with Ashley and Sarah yourself :)

Must listen 🎧

Ashley & Sarah are a breath of fresh air to the Halifax & Podcast scene. Keeping us current on all things fashion, health, entertainment, travel and so much more. This duo is a must listen for drives in the car & times you feel like being around your girlfriends.

My favourite duo.

Since Covid one of the main things I am missing is drinks and convos with my girlfriends. There’s nothing like it. Since discovering Rival and Queen I feel like I’ve gotten that back! Every week feels like a girls night out and it makes my soul so happy. Love you girls.
