Conversational Chemistry!

I am enjoying listening to Pack Light Podcast, their perspectives on many topics I discuss with friends and colleagues daily. I love that each episode is short and sweet!

Dear Mama

I love Nedra’s distinction between role and identity. Very thought provoking. I think it’s a paradigm shift for people who intertwine the two.
Keep up the good work!

Marilie ,

Very informative

This is a great podcast. I love the banter between the ladies and their perspective on mental health issues in the community.
