Twins

I am a mom of identical twins. They both have 2 daughters and live in different states. When they visit or are together they will often have the same clothes without shopping together. Or the same clothes for their daughters. They have the same sheets. Etc. They are incredibly the same but are not the same person obviously. I encouraged them to be put in different school classes at 4th grade and this helped them create different friends.

So good in so many ways

Quick and engaging, quirky and unexpected. Everything this gal likes in her podcasts! Looking forward to the next iteration of the show with the rebrand!

Why political

I really enjoyed this podcast for a while, but this last episode had to bring up Trump. I’m not a trump supporter by any means, but why do current politics have to be mentioned in every aspect of life, and especially here. This podcast is supposed to be fun and informative about people of the past. Can we all just stop talking about it ALL OF THE TIME. It’s unnecessary and I’m sick of it. If you feel the need to sprinkle in your options about current politics then change the description of the show.
