5 Stars…For REAL!
Sarah’s interviews are entertaining and fascinating. I enjoy the variety of people and subjects that she features in her podcasts. She is brutally honest and real. I attend the workout studio that she owns, and this podcast aligns with a lot of what she says during her classes. Keep those podcasts coming!
One of my new fav podcasts!
I’m obsessed with Sarah’s podcast because it completely lives up to its name. She asks all the questions that you (me) might feel too embarrassed to ask and she does it balls to the walls. From business to personal, she covers it all and it doesn’t get much more real than this. Thank you so much for inspiring me in so many ways.
