Pretty good

It's new so you still have to see how it goes but I love it when she has the older guests because the teens don't seem to really know what they are talking about most of the time but overall really good I mean for someone soo young she is very well spoken and doesn't use too many filler words which is soo nice compared to every other teen I personally know and going to highschool I know slot of them haha but good issues and I can't wait too see more great job!!

Courage

Only the most adventurous of podcasters would delve into the difficult content that Abby has. I do disagree with some of views expressed on this podcast, but that's why we have public forum. At least we have someone our own age confronting these issues.

Abby, you have my utmost respect. Live courageously!

insightful and entertaining

Abby is a great intervewer and is very good as a host. Her questions for her guests are well thought out and explores different perspectives. It shows that she puts lots of thought in prepping for her shows and topics.
