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!!

Abuse

Laura Owens is a woman that has abused several men in the last 10+ years and uses mental illness and the pain and suffering of real victims of domestic violence and assault to her gain to make a podcast. It is deplorable. She’s currently embroiled in a court case in which she once again fakes a pregnancy, one many fake pregnancies to force men into dating her, she uses suicide as a threat to blackmail what she has done is just unforgivable and this podcast is just a slap in the face of all the victims of domestic violence, assault and those that suffer from mental illness.
