    Change of Address - A Bonus Episode Sponsored By Target

    This week’s episode of #TheFriendZone is brought to you by Target.

    Dustin and Assanté left their homes in their early 20s (Detroit + Atlanta) in pursuit of their dreams. Fran left her home in her late 30s (NYC) in pursuit of peace. We'll share what leaving home is like - from deciding where to go, to what to take and what to leave. Moving trucks. Finding homes in unfamiliar cities and neighborhoods. Finding work. Leaving old friends and loves. Leaving family. Making new friends. And starting life from scratch as an adult in a new city.

My God! I love that Fran chose that story to tell. I can believe the guys never of it. Dustin’s commentaries are killing me.

Maaannnnn there’s so many things I could say about this podcast. Y’all have changed my life since I started listening a year ago .. I look forward to every weeks episode, part roasting , part improv comedy, part therapy session, part wellness, part musical education ... like I could keep going. You all have changed the game. All I can say is I love you guys and never stop doing what you do. Thank you thank you thank you <3

latexPRINCE ,

insightful and leaves me in stitches

Honestly I look forward to this podcast every week. Its like getting together with my best friends— Dustin, Fran & Assanté have really cultivated an amazing presence and I'm so thankful. They share anecdotally which personalizes and relates them to the audience. Part roasting and part tough love, this podcast doesn't hold out on helping you become an elevated version of yourself. Love y'all all the way from Toronto!
