Immarys ,

Love it!!

I love getting to hear how Mara and her guests are “handling their scandal.” This podcast inspires me to get my life together while also reflecting on the steps I’m already making towards that. That’s rare! This podcast is perfect for everyone!

Literally Obsessed

Mara’s humor, transparency, and personality truly shines through in her episodes! This podcast is such a quick & easy listen. Plus, you’ll leave each episode with some pointers on how to HYS - a generous queen.

Thank you for the reminders!!

First, as weird as this might sound, I find Mara’s voice so relaxing & calm! If you need reminders on how to extend yourself grace or why you should extend yourself grace check this podcast out. She talks about things that sometimes might be uncomfortable to hear but necessary. Even though I don’t attend Law School I feel like this podcast reaches many of us in our different lives.
