One of the Best!
I have been listening to this podcast since day one - why I haven’t rated all this time is beyond me! I have been a fan of Kathryn Budig’s for years because of my love for yoga. Upon discovering she had a podcast, I was delighted to meet Kate Fagan, her lovely and amazing wife. The two of them perfectly compliment each other, make me laugh out loud often and always give me something to think about after listening. This podcast is perfect for everyone and I have been especially loving the interviews with the authors this season. This is the kind of feel good pod cast we all need right now. Kathryn, I’m all about the chocolate chip cookie, and I too, married someone that’s loves oatmeal raisin! Keep what you’re doing ladies!!
The honesty is the best part! 💕
Hilarious and all so true. I watch a lot of British TV and am fascinated by the fact that so many of the iconic detective shows take place in such small towns and villages. Morse, Endeavour, Miss Marple, Vera... how can there so many murders in these places? Wouldn’t they run out of people to kill ?
