Who knew?

Who knew I was interested in Mushrooms, Avalanches, and stamp collecting? Apparently Dad Ward did! Thank you Alie for continuing to ask smart people all of the questions that keep. I can now tell people about “marine snow” and impress them with the fact that a group of hippos is indeed called a bloat (even if they never cared to know these things) I continue to be delighted on a weekly basis! Tuesday never comes soon enough (and that’s saying a lot because I have to get up for work at 3:50 in the morning on Tuesdays) Many thanks Dad Ward!

The coolest (ever)

Allie Ward is the coolest friend that I wish I knew/hung out with in person and this podcast has taught me so much and also brought me much joy in many drive times where I needed laughs. Definitely listen to them all and don’t skip the ones you think will be boring because they won’t be. They are all good. Trust me.

Brain food 🥘

I love listening this podcast while I draw or clean my room. 👩🏻‍🎨😊 I’m shook because I feel like I learn more from this podcast, then when I’m in school.
