Meredith, your sister is annoying

Can you not have your sister on your show...? Or ask her to chill out? She hams it up way too much. I look to your show for info... I just don’t need her 2 cents. Really annoying

Finally an interesting love podcast

To find my favorite podcasts, I listen to a few episodes from different podcasts within a specific genre. Recently, I began looking for a good love and relationship podcast. After searching many, being somewhat disappointed, I’m so grateful a friend recommended Love Letters. This is a fun, modern, attention-grabbing podcast, that steers us away from gender biases and assumptions, into conversations and interviews covering a wide range of subject matter that just about anyone might find to be useful, interesting subjects.
