Amazing

I love how they make serious topics into an open conversation where opinions are listened to and there is no conflict around disagreement. As a 25 year old learning constantly about life - these woman share their personal (and relatable) views but also add a comforting humour to it.

Smart & Sassy

I just love it.

I love the topics discussed, I love hearing their opinions and most of all I love the fact that they don't always agree with each other. Strong ladies and strong opinions.

Oh, and funny as hell.

So informative

Love this team of ladies bringing me ideas advice and laughter. It makes me feel old listening (52) but it’s brings me bang up to date with the mindset of a younger generation of women who think so differently to me. Very refreshing.
