A must listen!
I grew up watching Caroline play so I was so excited to see that she started a podcast. Both her and DKirks are excellent interviewers and the conversations they have with their guests seem so natural. And I love the competitive banter segment at the end!
TALK ABOUT REAL
Authentic. Real. Genuine. Educational. Inspirational. Fun. Lively. Unique. Not enough words to describe this podcast.
DKirks & Doty bring these people and their stories to life by making me feel as though I know the features personally. I hear them. And sometimes, that’s all we need in this world: someone to listen and hear us.
Perfect balance of normalizing questions marks, unknowns and foreign concepts with competitive banter, what you’re sipping on and why golf IS the greatest game on earth.
This is such a fun show. Dkirks and Doty have great banter and clearly enjoy themselves. Good people, good stories, I highly recommend a listen!
