Mkayfofofofo ,

Incredibly helpful!

I thought I knew a lot about hacks and points, but I’m learning SO MUCH from this show! It’s so authentic, the conversations feel like real conversations, and I love the mailbag episodes and that the host actually listens to listener feedback (and will directly answer questions)! I recommend it to anyone who will listen.

PodSaveMilliesMama ,
