Smart, fun show from smart women!!

Listened to the inaugural episode of Dear Romance Writer Podcast and LOVED IT!! So obviously a show from three smart women who spend a lot of time thinking about how people can be both self-loving and in-love at the same time. Love Roan Parrish's silky smooth voice and super-wise love tips, Avery Flynn's supporting mom awwww's for people having a tough time of it, and Xio Axelrod's cool takes and music recs. Go listen!!!!!
