Relatable and insightful

Great podcast with fun and insightful guests and topics of interest. Appreciate your point of view and fun way of bringing light to the things we need to discuss about relationships.

Genuine, witty, bold and engaging podcast

I stumbled upon this podcast during a painful breakup in 2020 and instantly connected to Natasha. She’s witty, bold and unapologetically herself. I look for authenticity and she brings it in spades. The podcast covers an array of useful, thoughtful and impactful topics that aren’t just targeted towards singles navigating the dating scene. I’ve had episodes that really helped my friends that are married. I’m a massive fan and will be here for the ride. ✌🏼
