Thought Provoking

Amazing podcast that’s always enlightening! I agree with another review that said “..it’s like someone climbed into your head..”

@realme ,

Cspears

I love the format. It evokes curiosity and almost feels like your climbing into someone else’s head for a moment.

LuvAllUR ,

I can relate!!

This podcast gives voice to thoughts, feelings, experiences that many of us black women have but may not speak up about. An important conversation with lots of rich layers.

...and gurl!! I loved Alanis & Sheryl on the DL too!!! Lol.
