I truly enjoy this podcast! Have listened to some others on decorating, who seem to say the same things over & over again.
Marianne is great..love the podcasts but please don’t have anymore episodes with Kat and Mike stickler…they are terrible!!!! Not good at interviews and their voices make me cringe! I skip the episodes with those two hosting.

Her voice is soothing, she asks her guests engaging questions and keeps a pace that many seasoned hosts can’t keep up with. Five freaking stars.
