Makes me feel less lonely

I started listening to these lovely ladies at a low time in my life when I didn’t have a lot of friends. Listening to Bethany and Kathleen was like having friends and made me feel a hell of a lot less lonely! They’re both kind, funny, and very entertaining! Keep up the good work, ladies! ❤️
