A must-listen

Oprah meets Sunday school ... without the religious angle! It’s the perfect description for this podcast. From body image to trauma and healing, getting underrepresented people into politics to activism, I highly recommend this podcast! I’ve learned something every week and love connecting with the small groups each week, too!

Honest and inspirational

Loving the episodes and the host Maxie McCoy! Such rich conversations and I’m jotting notes as the episode plays. Exactly what I needed to navigate these crazy times. A must-listen!!!

More than a Podcast...

Where else can you listen to a podcast and then digest and discuss in a small group under Maxie’s leadership and a collective of inspiring women?! Yes please!! 🙋🏻‍♀️
