Where did all the episodes go?
This podcast is amazing. Thank you Elle & Sarah! The episodes are very relatable and have been so helpful. However now I can only see 2019 & 2020 episodes. Where did everything prior go?
Just found this podcast and have been binging every episode. Loved the episode about red flags. I would love to see more episodes like that with real scenarios because I found it so helpful! And also one about green flags.
Binged all episodes in three days
Going through a terrible breakup and discovered LILAP and MEND. Have become obsessed like this is my survival tool/crutch. I wish there were more episodes.
