My new favorite podcast for “me time”
The host has such a warm, comforting voice. She is a great conversationalist and I love how she structures her interviews. I am a Birthmother and started off with the adoption episode, it was so well made and it sucked me in. I’ve been binging it all day. Highly recommend!
