I’m Only Being Honest ,

Great Information and Energy

This was my first time listening to Laura and Jan, and they’ve gained a new daily listener. Their guest and the authenticity of the topic of conversations they speak about is relatable. Listening to them in the morning can create alot of positive energy, that can become a healthy conversation with people you know and don’t know. If you haven’t already started listening to their podcast I would highly recommend it. Hearing different perspectives on things you know can enhance your knowledge about life, their podcast does provide these great insights.Keep up the the amazing work!!

You are sick Laura

Laura you are a sick sick monster. You need help and the fact that your parents are condoning your behavior is disgusting. You are trash. You are nothing. You are manipulative. I wish nothing but the very worst for you. You deserve to rot in prison.
