I feel like I’m there engaging in the podcast!
Alé and Betty are unapologetically themselves - I love it! You never know what you will hear and I think that may just be the best part. I especially love how I find myself feeling like I am there, having the conversations with them in real time. Thank you both for all that you are and sharing space for others to share their stories! Beautiful, hopeful, and inspiring!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Relatable, inspiring and important!
Really enjoy this podcast because it sheds list on true issues people experience. The good and the bad. As someone who can relate to coexisting with a mental health diagnosis, it is really validating to listen to a podcast that acknowledges these challenges and interviews people who have also been through a similar journey. Keep it up!
I’ve never listened to a podcast and so glad that I chose this to be my first.
Love it and keep it coming. 💜💜💜
