LoriWheat ,

Love this show so much!

I’ve been a long time listener of Molly’s, so I am a little biased since I am just a fan of anything Molls does! I love the way these 2 women have such natural, funny conversations, and don’t spend too much time on any one subject. I love especially when we get to hear about what’s trending in the UK like that frog guy or the Chippy shop haha. Such a great show if you just want a brief rundown on the trending topics of the week! I love to listen to it on the way into work to wake me up.

New Favorite Podcast!!!!!!!

I’m absolutely obsessed. I found Molly on Tiktok and started listening to the podcast and I was immediately hooked. It’s like hanging out with your cool older sister and her friends! Molly and Tiffany are both BRILLIANT and HILARIOUS and come to the table with such a great perspective on current internet culture. I’m constantly online and this podcast is so fun for me because 1) when I’m listening while working - it makes me forget I’m doing my boring job and 2) I’m listening to their recaps of what I’ve seen on the internet and they somehow always have a point or thought that I NEVER considered 3) They really nail it everytime It’s like I figured out a way to scroll social media while working lol. If you want a fun and also informative podcast that keeps you up to date with what’s trending on the internet - Trend Lightly is for you! I can’t express enough how much I love this podcast. It’s so well done and clearly both hosts are extremely talented. It makes me laugh so hard and keeps me above water when my anxiety and depression are really bad. Molly, Tiffany, I love you two!!!! Please keep up the great work :)

P.S I’m disabled and on mollys side with the current twitter cat drama 🙃

Truly The Best!

Molly and Tiffany Scott-Maddox are a dynamic duo you will instantly adore.

Even if “what’s trending” isn’t your thing, the conversation and topics covered are done so through such a creative, thoughtful and hilarious lens that it will leave you thinking “wow, I really do care about what’s happening on the internet!”.

At minimum, they will leave you feeling validated in all your “bad” habits and life’s regrets. ;)

Tune in every week for your self-care like I do! Thank you, Molls and TSM!
