Heart to heart talks

This podcast is a favorite. I look forward to Grasie’s conversation each week and the discovery of what their not ____ enough is.
I was really inspired to hear the conversation between Grasie and Amy Landecker. As a woman over a certain age, it’s inspiring to hear that success can come at any age. We need more stories like this.
