What an incredible human
Weeze has a gift. She has a way of putting concepts you have heard before in such a way that you “get” them, that they embed themselves under your skin. Listening to her is part of my weekly self care.
Amazing interviews and conversations
Weeze is brilliant. I always come away learning so much from her and the incredible guests she has on.
Ask Jeeves, I mean Weeze 🤦♀️
This speaks to me so much about the powerhouse that is Louiza Doran. Her brilliant mind, her acerbic wit, her humble-self and non-apologetic “this is what it is”, “sorry not sorry”, “I said what I said” personna is who she really, really is. I’ve heard how “Ask Weeze” came about a few times now and every time I hear it - I am more fascinated by the strength of character in this young woman. My path to Weeze was via Twitch @sir_twitch_alot who led me to Jade @jadesoulzuberi. My path since then has completely remade my IG feed, my FB feed and my trusted resources. These podcasts are the icing on the cake - adding to my Community participation on Weeze’s Podia. So thankful 🙏🏻🍁
