These are the conversations we need to have!
Chani’s conversation with Dr. Bat Sheva Marcus was amazing! They talk about all the conversations we need to be having in the community. I mostly love how they look at the culture and how it has affected women to harbor so much shame about sex. They are beginning to tear down so many of those walls and make it easier for women who struggle to talk.
I always listen to the podcasts while I’m doing the dishes and while I’m typing up things and it is so interesting and so amazing. It is super inspiring and helpful and just all round phenomenal.
Love it !
Love the variety of guests and topics and the real conversations Chani channels❤️
