These women are brilliant.

I’ve been listening to Kimmy and Liza for years. They’ve come with me on walks, when I (try to) work out at the gym, and when I’m home alone and feeling lonely. They feel like friends.

One thing I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t catch right away (I’m going to attribute that to my internalized misogyny and the fact that they have a traditionally feminine way of communicating and very funny) is that they are also utterly brilliant. Insightful, witty, even revolutionary.

These women understand emotional nuance on a level I haven’t found anywhere else. They’ve created a wonderful community and safe space. Their recent body positivity episode was AMAZING. They are so honest, open, vulnerable, thoughtful and amazing that it makes me feel better about my own journey. They talk about the things your friends are feeling but too embarrassed to tell you (not that anyone should be, but #society). I will listen as long as they make content. THANK YOU.

PS though I am off online dating for awhile—I just can’t with all the terrible guys I meet—their system finally makes it fair. Guys dating half of Manhattan? You can too. You can make it approach fair. Safely. While protecting your heart. This feels revolutionary, I appreciate this so much when I finally summon my bravery.

Dating can be so awful, but this podcast is delightful! Also like how they don’t believe you need to date to have a great life. Pro tip: if you’re looking for the actual 51 date journey, start from the beginning eps!
