May it provide you with safety, relief, and happiness.”

To be nice
I LOVE mickie mueller, but I gotta say I was somewhat bored listening to the episode. I will say that in the description it said they’d talk about covid but I didn’t think it would be the whole show, and it was very political. I like the personality of the hostess but the shows don’t really draw me in. The guests are great too but the show always leaving me wanting something more..witchy and less political. Perhaps a name change and a description tweak is in order
All positive Magic,
I finally have utube, and watched Dorothy Morrison at a “get together” outdoors. Loved it! I hope to see her on you utube again. Love your podcast and the fearless energy it gives me
I look forward to hearing this show every Friday night. It’s like listening two best friends talk about everything from politics to their everyday lives. For me, in my opinion, I love it!
