A cup of podcast joy.

I gave this podcast a go and honestly, I'm glad I did. The episodes are short, get right to the point, each one has a lot of good information in it and the companion website was handy as all of Lainey's sources were listed (bonus!). I actually learned a fair bit that might help me out in the future.
