Oh No Guys, I Think I’m In Love

I can’t convey how much I love this podcast. Binge listening is so easy. I also like listening closely and looking for hints so I can unmask who the story is about. I have about 5 times so far :) This is a really helpful podcast especially for people trying to find themselves and figure out what to do with their lives, 18 year olds like me. I would say you should do some on some African people, I’m African and we don’t have very much relatable role models and stories here. Great work on the podcast, I love everyone’s voice so much it’s embarrassing. I was going to quit Medium then I found your Sara Blakely article and that’s how I got here. I’ll still hang around for the meantime to discover previous content like this. Best of luck to the team. Keep it up. Papa Bless
