i don’t feel so empty inside when listening to this podcast. jennette is a great host and really knows how to keep conversation flowing. i usually listen to each episode the day it comes out so the only downside is that there isn’t more of them. i love the honesty and the fearlessness in subject matter. truly unique

I absolutely love this podcast!!! Jennette you are so smart and I love your thoughts!! You and your friends inspire me so well and I love listening to “Empty inside” when I’m bored or if I need something to listen to. I spent 7 hours listening to your podcast last night and this is DEFINITELY a 5 star podcast and if I could rate it more I’d put a 100000 for this one🤩🤩 This is the only podcast I listen to! And the only one I want to listen to💙!
