Brilliant podcast

Stumbled across this podcast three years ago when Sarah was on the Jenna+Julien podcast and fell in love, I binge listened to all the previous episodes and have listened to every episode religiously since then. Being from the UK I never watched Road Rules or The Challenge so wasn’t sure if I’d connect to the podcast but Sarah and Susie are amazing, intelligent and funny ladies whose conversations are captivating, 10/10 would recommend

The perfect blend of trivia, topical subjects and entertaining chitchat!

I stumbled upon the podcast randomly when looking for something new to listen to and am glad I did. Makes my lunchtime walks much more interesting, feels like taking two friends with me!

How are there not more reviews?

These women are intelligent, funny, relatable. The content is always interesting and relatable. Never a dull moment, it is the podcast I listen to to wake me up in the morning and get me ready for the day. Keep up the good work!
