Orphans are successful!

Chanel and Amber have the best guests! They tackle serious subjects with open hearts and laughter. Great chemistry between these two feisty comedians. There are nuggets of orphan wisdom to gather from every episode that I can apply to my own life, even though I still have my parents. High recommend!
