Love this podcast!

Love love love this podcast. Jolenta and Kristen are so thoughtful, smart, and funny. I love hearing about their experiences living by the book and that they bring a critical and feminist perspective to the podcast. Can’t wait to hear more!!

My Favorite Podcast

I don’t think I can get enough of this podcast. I always trust I’ll get honest opinions about self-help books and it has probably saved me SO much time and money for not having to read each of these (especially the ones I was skeptical about!). It has also opened my eyes that it’s okay for me to only take advise from parts of books that really work for me instead of trusting everything these books say! I love hearing listeners’ comments and I feel like my eyes have been opened to so many different viewpoints. I’ve been telling everyone about the show so I hope you continue to read as many self-help books as y’all want!

Also Kristen and Jolenta, I cannot thank you enough for being so vulnerable on this show - it has strangely helped me work through my own trauma as I’ve been on my own healing journey. Thank you for opening up about so much - I know it helps others and it’s so inspiring to hear about 💗💕

Saves me from reading BS self-help books!

I’m a self-help book junkie. I’m particularly drawn to trending books about productivity, organization, happiness, and confidence. I discovered this podcast after Kristen and Jolenta were guests on another podcast I subscribe to. When I saw that they had done an episode on *Getting Things Done* I decided to listen to their take on it. I’m now hooked and have gone back through several seasons of episode trying to weed out other books that I’ve had on my list. They are great at distilling the key points of each book, and I find much of their commentary humorous.
