Life changing!

I started listening to this amazing podcast when I went though a rough time when I was navigating my relationship with my mom. There was an episode about breaking up with your mom and since then I kept listening to Caroline and Kristin. They are hilarious and informative. Best podcast ever!!

Great podcast!

I love to listen to these smart and funny women talk about all kinds of subjects from women playing in the NBA to the situation with Britney Spears. If you want a good time with some girlfriends these two are great!
