My favorite pod

These women are doing the work. I grew up in Marysville next to Tulalip tribes and never knew so much about native culture until now. There is truly a disconnect and it’s women like Makita and Adrienne that help bridge the gap even when they shouldn’t have to. They are truly gifts to this world.

Amazing show

Amazing co-hosts with wonderful energy together and with their guest. Every episode feels like a warm conversations with friends/family even when they discuss heartbreaking information.

I also love all of the guest with such a wide range of life experiences and knowledge basis. This show enriches both the mind and heart in every episode
