Chills

I wasn’t sure where to start and downloaded “Accepting Your Success.” Halfway through, I’m not kidding, I got chills and goosebumps. Joy just ~gets~ it. She’s such a wonderful mental health advocate and she shares her tools and insights which are SO! On point. Subscribed immediately!!

The Biscuits & Gravy of My Podcast Rotation

This podcast feeds me on so many levels. It’s inspiring, insightful, educational and refreshing. Poetry slam snaps to the host Joy for being able to navigate the topics of culture, mental health and higher education in a way that is motivating and uplifting. Monday mornings are hard but this podcast gives me just the vitamin boost I need to carry me through the week. By the end of each episode I’m full and sopping up the gravy with whatever music recommendation is given that week. What a blessing this podcast has been. Get ya life.
