Wish there was more

I love how this podcast keeps me in a good mood at work especially with all the stressful thing’s happening fight now. Shame not all the episodes are listed right now. I hope they come back before I finish the ones that are here. I just love listening to Jasmin and Gigi.

Emivine ,

Stick to knitting and let Gigi talk!

Too much talk of politics and SJW BS. Also, Jasmin is constantly talking over and correcting her mom. She comes across as such a know-it-all and it’s grating to listen to. Unsubscribe.

egrace63 ,

My absolute favorite podcast!!!

I’ve listened to every single podcast and they are all worth listening to! I especially look forward to hearing the saga of Short Rows.
These two/three are terrifically ingenious, inventive and positive. Plus their show notes are excellent.
