So funny! I binged!

I listened to all of them in like a few days. Amazing! Millie is very insightful and philosophical which I love. Natalie has a really cute contagious laugh. Both girls are so funny. I just think Natalie repeats some of her stories way too often and interrupts A LOT.

I dated a Persian gril

I can’t say Persian girls are bad but I dated a wrong Persian girl.

The most informative podcast on the market

As an avid podcast listener, I’ve found this particular podcast to be groundbreaking and intriguing. Unlike virtually every other podcast, the founder(s) of this podcast seem to have an informed and accurate understanding of the topics being featured; ranging from being a young professional of an ethnic background to relationships and current sociopolitical/economic issues-I’m always astounded at the deep level of understanding and concerns that her listeners have. Because if this deep level of understanding, this podcast provides me, and presumably the rest of the listeners, with a new and profound appreciation for cultural matters that challenge young people in our generation and beyond, notwithstanding her witty and clever sense of humor that compliments the often controversial subjects in a manner that is not only professional, but also necessary. Overall 10/10 podcast. Glad I tuned in.
