Great podcast!!

I thought this would be just for women, but as a man I have enjoyed hearing a woman’s perspective on relationship issues. I’ve learned a lot but also enjoyed the humorous, engaging discussions of a wide variety of topics. Five stars!!

I never listened to a Podcast before but someone recommended that I listen to Dr Donnica’s cast on sleep problems. It helped me so much with my sleep and I recommend it to everyone.
