Amazing podcast!

This has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts! Mary has super interesting and engaging guests and seriously has a gift for interviewing people and inviting the listener in. She’s also hilarious and I find myself laughing along often! The most impressive thing about the podcast is how real life issues, especially for those living in or loving Nola, are intertwined into every episode. Truly and inspiring podcast that has helped me fall back in love with my city after COVID.
