I love this podcast!

When I’m feeling over whelmed, anxious or upset, I listen to this podcast and it helps me calm myself. Meredith’s voice is so soothing. She listens and gives advice without forcing her opinion onto others. She isn’t afraid to change her mind when she gets new information. It’s refreshing.

Meredith and her sister feel like family

Love Letters is a warm, chatty friend that you catch up with in your pjs, talk about high school boyfriends all the way to 2nd marriages or widowhood. Listening to Meredith and her no nonsense sister fills the void left by my friends who now have family and children and less time to talk about dating and other single gal tribulations. Meredith gets how painful and difficult it is to meet and maintain a relationships past mid 30s, while sharing heartfelt stories of people who are vulnerable enough to continue to put themselves out there. This is my favorite podcast.
