Informative, Inspiring

This is such an important podcast!

Relatable and Insightful

I love how relatable this podcast is. When it comes to friendships especially as adults there are so many nuances to it. I love that this podcast talks about the growth, the separation, and everything in between. You can tell that Manya & Terri are best friends, when I listen to the episodes I feel like I am right there with them at a table having a cup of coffee chatting!

Love the Heart!

Terri and Manya are very clearly bff’s and are leading by example, in their authentic conversations. I’m shocked there is so much research on friendship and they always seem to be talking right to me!
