Unlike any other

Not only is this topic not discussed in depth enough, it is not discussed in the correct way. Claire and Serena have a wealth of knowledge on the subject. As the creator of The Universal Needs and The Universal Needs Program, no one can do what Claire does. The familiar feeling that Claire and Serena create in the show make it a pleasure to listen to. I never miss an episode!
