Great Podcast for Persepctive

Tackles very difficult topics with ease and openness. I am always excited to see what topic is next! It broadened my horizons in terms of what I’m listening to, and gives me perspective about topics that I might not normally be comfortable talking with. Hosts are great!

A great cast/guest.

This show is great with great topics that definitely aren’t the easiest to talk to people about. It is endearing hear both hosts showcase their personal growths and stumbles. It helps me and others connect with the show, like good friends would.

Realness

I found Frau Pow because they interviewed a roller derby friend of mine. I appreciated the time and intentionality they took with asking Kate questions.

I also love that they can be happy and silly. I listen to a lot of podcasts and a lot of them are heavy. So it’s nice to have a mixture of podcasts with Odd and Rags!

Keep up the good work!
