Sooooo delightful

This podcast makes me laugh to myself out loud when I’m out walking the dog. My neighbors may think I’m a little cuckoo, but it’s totally worth it. Not only is it so funny, Michelle & Jordan are my favorite duo to listen to; a truly beautiful friendship. Thank you so much for spreading joy and delight.

Letting the light back in!

I love the dynamic between M and J so much- I feel like I'm kickin it with my frenz.

Its deeply refreshing to listen to other adults, from varying degrees of success, discuss the ins and outs of managing/not-managing adulthoo from a comedic perspective!

Yall we need to laugh at ourselves like this more often and remember how to shake off all the rigidities that aging tries to instill in us!
This pod helps me wiggle it loose, laugh, and get back into my flowowww.

Thank you!!!!
