AMAZING

I love the authentic conversation form the guest; 1st ep had me hands down. First, I love &Pizza and was hungry when I listened so my attention was all the way up. It was a great discussion and went so easy with my morning tea. Thanks Angie for creating a home for the culture and those who create the color for it. Amazing. #ToneSister #KeepPushing

Dannie-Jay ,

Aaaahhh!!!! It must be Angie on the Miiic 🎤

Angie the voice of the DMV!!! I love hearing you on our weekday mornings and now I am super happy to hear more of what you have to share on your podcast!!! Thanks Angie for all you do!! Keep up the great work!!!

Blind Magic ,

Brilliant!!!

Hi Ange! This is brilliant! It is really peeling back the curtain on the culture of success. However, I believe it can be made more lively and thrilling to mirror you as it’s not yet. For instance, the “& pizza” episode will do better with some ambience sound and music scoring. Overall, great job! I adore you. Keep up the good work!
