Love this podcast!

The format of this podcast is one that I haven’t seen before—I love that we get to hear one episode with the guest and then the recap between Dana and Courtney. It’s such a decidedly intentional rhythm, like a deep breath, instead of rushing through the stories and insight. Oh and of course, I love me a series that’s riddled with the explicit E!
