Lovely

Just lovely! Katie is a great interviewer and Alice is just all things lovely. You can see they even use each other as strength in some areas where Alice has come through a tough period or katie has and they almost share and reassure one another... doesn’t seem like a podcast. It seems like a bit of therapy for one another ...
Iv been a victim of domestic violent and I had to leave the country bcos of it. I know what it’s like and I just can’t imagine being as strong as you ladies ... all power and strength to you! #girlpower
