so much love

I really do love listening, taking notes, and doing assignments from this podcast. I appreciate how much I've learned from this podcast. I also love the other podcasts this one has introduced me to.

A Creative and Quirky Advice-Cream Cone

Took me a while to start listening given that I follow one of the hosts and took early note of the amazing guest gets that were Michaela Watkins and Esther Perel, but I’ve been binging to catch up and am thoroughly impressed by the production quality and heartfelt storytelling and psych analysis of Advice from Mom. Rebecca is a character for sure, and I gotta say, thanks to her jingles, this is one of the only podcasts of two dozen+ I follow where I don’t skip through the ads! Mama B is a delightful Midwesterner and the mother-daughter bond between these two makes me miss my own mom. Out loud gasps and tears for the ongoing Dr. T series. Looking forward to more episodes from you ladies!
