Getting lost in JBU

These two are so entertaining that I forget the ads are ads and accidentally listen through them when I definitely meant to skip ahead!

We love it see it…

For me this podcast is the definition of true partnership.

Being a longtime listener I’ve loved learning and growing with you both (and Melisa 💖) - it’s like having an extra set of besties handy when I need to hear about someone else’s life instead of my own for a little while! For that content alone I would happily give five stars.

But I’d be remiss in failing to mention all of the diverse topics discussed with outside guests; the incredibly creative, hilarious, and revealing “game show” segments; THE DOGS/relationship goss/hot tea spilling; and everything else this podcast brings to the table.

Love y’all so much, keep doing great things!

Evolution, babyyyyyyy

Been listening for a few years on and off because that’s life, right? Every time I check back in I’m surprised and excited to hear what’s going on and how they have both evolved on their journeys. They compliment one another from a listeners perspective but also validate that not all BFF relationships are nor should they be, effortless. Four thumbs up and there’s a slight chance I’d stay with that cheater
