Handing lalaffnd ,

Thank you Rhea!!

This show should have five stars across the board!! Thank you Rhea for creating a FREE, ad-free, hundred episode deep podcast for my two baby girls to fall asleep to! They won’t listen to ANYONE else! Only their “Bea!” Thank you thank you thank you. Off to buy your merchandise now as my way of paying you back for all the effort that this podcast takes you. Your stories have shortened our nighttime fall asleep time from 2 hours to just 20 minutes. I’m so grateful.
