5 ⭐️ podcast!

I really enjoyed these candid conversations & inside peek into what these women experienced & accomplished on The View. I hope they’ll add more interviews to this podcast. Maybe some repeat guest hosts or other View staff w/stories to share? It’s a shame we can’t hear from Barbara, but maybe her assistant or close friend/relative could share in her place?
