Love love love it

I seriously rate this podcast 5 stars! I find myself listening to it constantly. About 5 times a day! This causes me to run through the episodes quickly but I am so happy a new season is finally out and I just love this series so much I really recommend it to everyone wanting advice in their relationships or people dealing with bad breakups!

Coronavirus blues, begone!

Thank GOODNESS the new season has started. I didn’t realize how much I missed this show until I heard it again. It’s made me feel hope (again). It’s helped me forget the pandemic and remind me that there is fun and whimsy and romance and our shared humanity. Thank you, Meredith! :)
