Like Eavesropping on a Convo

This podcast has it all. Some episodes are like eavesdropping in on a girlfriend's conversation, other episodes have professionals discussing important topics in a real, raw & authentic way. All opinions and views are held in a nonjudgmental space. Jess & Laura have all the ingredients for a perfectly imperfect podcast. Love it.

REAL MOTHERHOOD

HONEST, REAL AND RAW… I have been following Laura now for almost 10 years and have watched her grow and only become more and more amazing she was my first CrossFit couch and I fell in love with her in an instant. This has been my number one podcast go to for motherhood and just life.. I love all the topics and its so diverse 5 stars all the way

Besties.

Jess and Laura. They are two of my best friends but they don’t know it yet.
But truly, this is a different podcast, raw, honest. I wish this existed when my kids were little: A judgement- free space with plenty of resources. The catch-up episodes are my favorite, because -and this may sound weird- but I really feel like they are old friends. So much so, I’m a Patreon supporter of this podcast too, why? Because as an enneagram 4, I needed the deepest, rawest thoughts too. You will love this, even if you are not a mom, even if your babies are teenagers like mine.
You won’t regret it, we can all be besties now.
