Best of the best
This podcast is sooo great. Entertaining, great audio, & intriguing stories! I love all the guests and the solo episodes with just Julia too! The length is perfect for a commute and it’s just a great show overall! 10/10 would recommend to a friend! Julia is a great interviewer & asks the perfect questions. Can’t wait for the next episode!! 💛💛💛
Self indulgent and pretty boring. Julia also vocally supports the anti vaxx movement and promotes false information. Pass.
Love this. Well produced and storytelling at its finest!
I thoroughly enjoy all the stories from different athletes and enjoy her be my guest episodes as well. Julia is a great host and I find the balance between her telling her own stories and sharing others is perfect.
