Thank you

I did not realize I needed this podcast until I started listening. Thank you ladies and your guests for giving us this gift. Hope you do another series.

Great episode

I truly appreciate the Michelle Kwan interview. I’m more of a weekend warrior than an Olympic Athlete. It’s refreshing to hear an Asian Athlete to be treated with dignity and respect.
