The Real Swamp Witch ,

This is my favorite podcast!

I have been listening to this podcast for a few years and it’s always my first priority when looking for something to listen to. The hosts are thoughtful, inclusive, smart and funny. I wish I could know them in real life, but I’ll settle for listening to each episode s soon as it drops, instead! Thanks for all you do, Kristin and Jolenta!

How

Um please can you tell how to LISTEN to the podcast because this is a REAL problemo.

Fun and Interesting

I’m not a reader of self help books, but I love this podcast! The concept intrigued me from the start. I commend their vulnerability and willingness to try new things- So we don’t have to! I like how they start to feel like old familiar friends, the fun ones. And please, keep the F bombs coming... bombs away!
