Inspires introspection and sparks a conversation

Make New Friends nails the key aspects of all great podcasts: likeable hosts, natural flowing conversation, crisp production, etc. On top of that, it inspires you to throw a healthy dose of thought behind a part of everyday life which we perhaps take for granted a lot of the time. Mary and Sienna shine a spotlight on the nature of friendships, channeling their own perspectives and tapping into the viewpoints and experiences of others. The podcast explores dynamics which we could all benefit from being more mindful of!
