    37. Trendy vs. Cheugy: Skinny Jeans, Girl Bosses & Guys Named Jake

    Crocs! Pop sockets! Side parts! Today's episode is a light + not-super-serious rundown and commentary on what is claimed to be "cheugy."

Relateable, Raw, & Deep

This podcast is increadibly relateable, raw, and deep. I resonate with so many of the experiences and feelings that these girls express and getting their point of view on life has been incredibly valuable. The topics are fun yet meaningful and deep - the perfect mix. Excited for more episodes!
