My fave poddy

Celeste, thank you for your amazing work. This podcast is so inspiring and helpful to so many of us! I must have listened to everything you have posted if not once/ twice during my prep.
It’s my 1st prep and you and the guests you’ve had have been absolutely the best support any newbie could wish for. You deserve so much more appreciation for your effort girl. Keep up the amazing work 💕💕💕
