Educational and fun

I have learned so much through listening to this podcast. I love that the hosts assume their listeners are smart and informed. This allows the conversations to go to a whole different level. They are deep, complex, and thoughtful. Thank you Amina and Ann.

Substantive, provocative, warm and funny

Such a pleasure to hear these women talk about things from the ridiculous to sublime. They have helped me explore many things outside my comfort zone, and I have learned a lot while laughing and sometimes crying.

Consistently high quality & thoughtful discussions

My favorite podcast by far. I love listening to Amina & Ann talk about anything and everything. They are both very thoughtful, intelligent, and bring their own perspective on life into the conversation. I appreciate the interviews they do because they are not the cookie-cutter format I hear on other podcasts or shows, and I also love it when they break down a single topic in one in-depth podcast. Keep them coming!
