Great show!

Steph host of the Health, Happiness

My latest go to podcast

I highly recommend listening to Steph! She has good conversations, deep thoughts, and I’m never left feeling pressured to do anything. She presents the facts, she asks the questions, and she brings on guests that have opened my mind to thoughts I would have never thought about. And even topics that I wasn’t all that interested in, not only did I learn about that certain topic, the conversation grew into places it hadn’t started. Real conversations, without the guilt of not being good enough. Listen and learn!
