Captivating, raw and relatable

I didn’t think I would but I loved this podcast! I got really hooked on listening to what happened next. It’s all very real and relatable, I’m sure we know a few “Andrews.” Thank you for sharing your story so honestly ladies!

Courageous podcast

Thank you for sharing your story. It was an interesting topic and, ultimately, uplifting how you dealt with everything and want to help others in similar situations

Gripping

I started listening in Auckland on a drive to Wellington. Should have stoped at Hamilton for lunch but I was so gripped by story I finally stopped at Turangi, three hours later than planned.
