A favorite

Absolutely love this podcast! One thing to note which I’m not even sure the hosts have control over: I was sooo disappointed to hear a weight loss ad (sono bello I think it’s called?) on the pod this week. Kind of threw me off my game a little. There are actually too many ads in general for my taste but they’re normally not upsetting to me like that. But, i still kept listening, which shows you how much I like it!
