Katy Epling ,

My new FAVORITE!

A friend introduced me to this podcast a few months ago, and it has quickly become one of my absolute FAVORITES! In fact, I recently cut way back on my list of podcasts, but this one is definitely still on the list. I love the amazing women I have “met” through Joanne. I love that we get to laugh together, and then we get to learn through everyone’s stories. It is the perfect mix, and such an incredible concept for a podcast!

kathy os ,

Thank you!

Thank you, Joanne for doing this podcast! I laugh at every single episode! Each one truly makes me feel less alone in my imperfections, and I have many. Thank you for finding guests that are so willing to share their own “not so fancy moments”.

Paige Killian ,

Yes, please!! 😂

Life is too serious sometimes, & this podcast gives us a break! I have laughed & related to so many of these stories. Thank you so much for putting this awesomeness into the world! We need it!
