Love this Podcast!!

Such a nice surprise every time I get a new podcast from Fran in my downloads. I am new to the game this year and already slightly obsessed 😍. Love her voice, how clearly enunciated the podcast is, so upbeat and full of interesting topics. This podcast was a wonderful find and three of us are headed to MahjCon from hearing about it on this podcast. We WILL be playing MJ at night in our hotel for our week long girls trip 🥳🀄️

So informative!

I’m new to MJ and I have really been enjoying and learning so much from Fern and her guests. These podcast episodes are a great way to understand more about this fun and challenging game.
