My new favorite podcast

I have a bout a 30 to 45 minute drive one way to work every morning and back, I love that the episodes are short enough for me to listen to you on my ride without having to wait for the end later. Content is interesting, entertaining, and sometimes funny, I love the dynamic between the two of them. Big plus, no politics! I stopped listening to most of my fav podcasts because they keep making comments on politics and I’m so tired of politics.

My Go To Podcast

As a mom, I only get a few minutes of alone time each night. A bath with Mountain Murders each night is my solace! I laugh. I relate. I cannot get enough. If you are not a patron you are missing so much! Jump on that wagon. Trust me!
