Still killin’ it!

I’ve been listening since 2017 and am still obsessed! Susie and Sarah entertain and educate in every episode often leading me to do deep dives into subject matter I would have never explored. They inspire me to do better by sharing stories of their personal journeys trying to navigate life. I refer to them as my podcast friends when I talk about their episodes, as if I know them in real life. Everyone should give these ladies a listen; they do not disappoint!
