Martha TMI

I just loved listening to Chelsea and Martha. They are so different from each other but the convo was smooth and fun. They are an awesome pair.

You and Jo

Your honesty and clarity about your relationship with Jo is a gift to everyone of us who have listened to your podcast. I had to laugh when you spoke about how you behaved in the past and what people must have thought about you. I have to admit that I thought that you would be hard to have a relationship with! But now, after doing all the hard work that you’ve done, you are obviously open to love in the best possible way. I’m cheering from the sidelines for you to find the excellent relationship that you deserve!

Catherine is the best!

I love the way she navigates the conversations and does a great job making the guests feel heard
