Customer ReviewsSee All
I just discovered this podcast and love it. I found it through sober community on Instagram, it was great to hear someone’s story and being able to relate but I love all the topics and so many being ones that nobody talks about which makes me crazy. Love the real, raw and honesty. It’s so important to share your story, you never know who is listening that it will help and who can learn from it or see another perspective.
What a gem!
Just discovered this pod and I’m loving it! Katie presents great stories and I love how she LISTENS and doesn’t interrupt or try and make the story about her. Thank you for sharing topics that are so important!
So real and raw
I love how this podcast brings such a personal perspective to such “taboo” topics with these people answering questions I didn’t even know I had but would NEVER ask. Love being a “fly on the wall” for these conversations! Great podcast, Katie!!
