no thank you, Jamie ,

Listener

I’ve been listening to my parents, Gaby and Allison, since buzzfeed days because they’re both so funny and have a compelling dynamic together. They interview a wide variety of people in many different fields of study, but I’d say mental health and queer politics are their most discussed topics. If you’ve ever felt the desire to learn more about the people around you, grow in your emotional well being, and laugh a lot then I’d give this podcast a listen!

Tops of the notches

I have a hard time picking out podcasts to listen to because that choice is always mood dependent. However, it doesn’t matter what mood I’m in - JBU is always the perfect choice! Plus, as a mentally ill queer non-binary person, I feel safe listening to Allison and Gaby. Yabba dabba dooooooooooo!
