Relatable

I’ve been listening over the past few months. I have a toddler and loved hearing Astrid grow. Thank you for sharing your lives.

Universal appeal —cheers from Chicago

Sophie’s exquisitely honest and celebratory journey is living proof of Eudora Welty’s claim that “all writers speak to and from emotions eternally the same in all of us—love, pity, fear don’t play favorites or leave anyone out.” (Hope I didn’t mangle quote!)

Great podcast, with some consecutive feedback about VO

Sophie— thank you for this honest and heartfelt podcast about your journey as a single mother by choice. I love the calls, recordings of meetings, Skype sessions, etc. What could be room for improvement is when you directly talk to the recorder. It’s as if you’re trying to be as quiet as possible. Why? Your story is worth hearing! Sometimes the vowels even drop off and I have to rewind because I simply can’t make out the words. In comparison, when you talk to someone else and record it, when you are on the phone, etc. your voice is clear and normal. Hurrah! More of that please. And thank you!
