    Season 1 Finale: Behind the Scenes

    Kat and Val’s season finale! Obnoxiously committed to practicing what they preach, our co hosts get even more vulnerable as they discuss and model the practices of centering ourselves in our interpersonal relationships. How doing so can feel tender and unpleasant, and how to allow room for unexpected emotions when they arise. Thank you to everyone who has been on this journey.

JOY JOY JOY

These two bring me such joy straight to my earbuds. They bring great topics and all of themselves into their recordings and it shows! So worth your time.

Fresh, hysterical and profound

These two have an awesome vibe. Hilarious & entertaining but also educational and inspiring. One stop for a deep belly laugh followed by a one liner I end up pondering for a week. You need this in your life.
